I'm confused (but determined)

Pattern: Firestarter by Yarnissima
Yarn: Socks that Rock Light in Bleeding Hearts

Such a lovely pattern, such a lovely yarn. They look like they'll be happy together. The problem is, I have to figure out what's going on with the directions. . .

I was fine until I hit the chart. It's not clear to me which rows you should knit to make the medallion pattern on the side of the foot. The chart has 16 rows, but the last row has an increase, which I know I don't want to do. (I think Row 16 is just for the top of the sock, although that's not clear either.) After doing some internet research, it seems like I should try repeating Rows 2-8 until my desired length.

Probably the best thing to do is to not over-think this. Me knit sock.
