Yes, two times and then the k4p3, so almost a 3rd repeat. It's one way to get a spiral. There may be other ways to do it but the only ones I can think of involve a change to the pattern on needle...

Welcome to KnittingHelp!

This is knit side to side rather than bottom up or top down. You want to measure from the cast on edge. That should be one of the front edges.
