confusing instructions
I am knitting the Seaman's Cap and I am confused about the line I have in bold print below. Is it telling me to repeat the round which I just knitted 17 more times, or is it saying to repeat Rnd 1 a total of 7 more times. I can't decide if that space between the 1 and the 7 is a typo. Thanks.

Rnd 1: *K1, p2, repeat from * to end of rnd.
Repeat this round 19 more times.
Next round: K.
Repeat Rnd 1 7 more times.
Change to larger needles and k until cap from beginning measures 7.5".

I'm inclined to think that it is to repeat Rnd 1 (7) more times.

The knit round is a turning round..so when the brim is folded up it'll do so nicely. I think it is to continue round 1 (7) more times. You change to larger needles to do the stockinette. I think she left out the parenthesis.
