Please Help with instructions - inc 1 st on foll 18th row twice

Hi, i am really confused with the instructions to knit a sweater!
This is one of my first projects and I already did the front and back part (more or less right)
Now I am at the sleeves and I don't understand the instruction.
It says:" Inc on each edge on foll 18th rows, inc 1 st twice, on foll 16th rows, inc 1 st 6 times "
I understand it as:
-18 rows regular
- row 19 I increase 1 st (on each edge?)
-row 20 again increase 1st (on each edge?)
-rows 21 - 36 regular
-rows 37 to 42 increase 1 st (on each edge?)

Is this right???
Please help!!!! thank you!!! :)

Increasing 1 st on the foll 18th row twice
by: Ratchadawan

Hi,

Thanks for visiting and questioning. The instruction for increase the sleeve will be like this;

*Working even on the next 17 rows and then increase on each side on the 18th row. repeat from * one more time.

**Then work 15 more rows even and increase on the next row (16th row). repeat from ** 5 more times.

So, if you're starting with row 1 then this is what it looks like;

Row 1-17: Work even without an increase.
Row 18: increase 1 st on each edge. (1st following 18th row increase)
Row 19-35: Work even.
Row 36: increase 1 st on each edge. (2nd 18th row increase)

Row 37-51: work even.
Row 52: increase 1 st on each edge. (1st foll 16th row inc)
Row 53-67: work even.
Row 68: increase 1 st on each edge. (2nd foll 16th row increase)
Row 69-83: work even.
Row 84: increase 1 st on each edge. (3rd foll 16th row increase)
Row 85-99: work even.
Row 100: increase 1 st on each edge. (4th foll 16th row increase)
Row 101-115: work even.
Row 116: increase 1 st on each edge. (5th foll 16th row increase)
Row 117-131: work even.
Row 132: increase 1 st on each edge. (6th foll 16th row increase)


I hope this makes sense. Have a great day!
