That's a good one. I would think the first one, k2p2 three times, then m1, does that leave you with an even number of stitches at the end of the row?

Yes, work 6 stitches then make 1. Unless you have to continue in ribbing after this, I wouldn't worry about having an odd number of stitches, but I suspect you're switching to st st. Am I right?
