Good day
If you choose not to use the backward loop increase to you just knit the stitch on the next row

m1 - make 1 (increase)
sl1 - slip 1

If you make 1 the method that is suggested you have enough stitches. Make 1 does not use a stitch out of the original 10 cast on.

I am confused about the cast on stitches.10 stitches is too few for the directions for the second row. What am I missing?

I don't do doll clothes anymore, but I do make shawls and afghans and am always looking for nice edgings for them. Thank you for this ruffle edge!
