Help needed understanding kim hargreaves knitting pattern 'delphine'?

i've just bought some wool to start a new kim hargreaves project, 'delphine', but i've already failed at the first row! hoping someone can help me decipher it. after casting on 157 it reads: "row 1: p1, (k1, p1) 8 times, (p9, inc once in each of next 7 sts) twice, p9, k1, (p1, k1) 20 times,... show more i've just bought some wool to start a new kim hargreaves project, 'delphine', but i've already failed at the first row! hoping someone can help me decipher it. after casting on 157 it reads:

"row 1: p1, (k1, p1) 8 times, (p9, inc once in each of next 7 sts) twice, p9, k1, (p1, k1) 20 times, wrap next st and turn.

the bit i don't get is "(p9, inc once in each of next 7 sts) twice". does this mean:

p9
inc7
p9
inc7

or

p1

(as in, increase after every one of the first 7 sts in the set of 9 sts, twice)?

either way (or any other way!), when doing these increases they'll be coming out of the cast on row - does anyone know of any guides to doing this?

thanks in advance :)
