two rows of stitches

k1p1 off needle
I am a new knitter. I am knitting a blank slate hat and was doing well. After casting on 49 stitches, I followed a knit one, purl one method for 9 rows. I then needed to do a KFB stitch to increase the next row to 50 stitches. I promptly messed up the KFB stitch and couldn’t fix it. So, I ripped back the row (hoping to just restart that last K1,P1 row and attempt the KFB again at the end).
But when I went to pick up the stitches on my needle again, I was surprised to see not one but TWO rows of parallel stitches. I’m hoping the attached picture shows what I mean.
Are you able to explain what happened and how I can fix it?
Thanks very much,
