I am working on a pattern that says start with 60 stitches
1st row, knit 2 stitches, then wrap yarn around twice before knitting next stitch, knit to last 2 stitches. When I do that I come up with an additional 56 stitches (you're essentially increasing). The second row (and these two rows form the foundation of the pattern) says to knit the first stitch and slip the second stitch over. Does it make sense that the pattern doesn't say you should have 116 stitches total or am I doing something wrong. This is an Erika Knight pattern from Knitting for Two (Satin Edge Blanket)

Help. I want to finish this over the Labor Day Weekend.

I'm a little confusedmyself.
Yes, you're right, you are essentially increasing on the first row, but you are decreasing on the second row. I'm just not sure if you drop the extra wrap or not. I would guess that you do. I'm also guessing that you are knitting the yO adn then passing the previously knit stitch over. But unlesss I saw the exact wording of the pattern and maybe a picture I can't be quite sure.

Hope this was a little help.
