That definitely makes more sense, with the stitch count.
First row after ribbing, you change your needle size, then increase a stitch at each end of the row. Then you knit even (no increase) until the 8th row, where you will increase a stitch at each end of the row. You go on, increasing at each end of the row every 8th row (so Rows 1, 9, 17, 25, 33, 41, 49, 57, 65) then every 6th row twice (so Rows 71,77).
I generally do my increases 2 sts in from the edge, which makes it easier when you come to seaming.
Hope this helps!
