Selvedge stitches
The 1st and last stitch of the pattern are selvedge stitches. To make the edges of your work even and smooth 2 more stitches (selvedge stitches) are added. You should always slip the first stitch as if to knit and purl the last stitch. The selvedge stitches are not counted in the pattern unless otherwise specified.

Abbreviations:

k - knit
p - purl
RS – right side

If you would like to change the width of the stripes, I recommend to start the new color in row 7 or row 21 of the pattern.
