I believe the designer literally means the "next stitch"... instead of the base of the beginning chains.

For the first Row I ended up with 58 stitches total but that includes the turning chain at the beginning.

Since the designer apparently isn't counting the turning chain as a stitch on Row 1...

Row 2 seems off at the end to me because that stitch isn't worked into at the end.
