You say that there are 2selvedge sts. So are you talking the the first stitch is a slip stitch and the last "extra" stitch should be a slip stitch too?

Not being a smarty pant here. Six times six is 36...You slip the first stitch, do your repeat 6 times then knit the last stitch. I hope this helps. I'm going to start this patten.

To make a yarn over, you simply bring the knitting yarn (the “over” strand) over the needle.
