Central Park Hoodie

Looking for advice from any knitters who have made this sweater.
This is my first sweater and I am knitting the sleeves first (both at the same time). I am wondering if I am misinterpreting the instructions regarding inc. I was thinking that increases are typically completed on the RS of the knitting and the instructions say to do the increases on the 8th row both ends of needle (9 times for size 32). When row 1 is designated the RS, isn’t row 8 a WS row being an even number? I don’t understand why I am having a problem with this. I just want to make sure that I do it the correct way the first time.


Search the data base on this site and you should find a lot of post. I believe there was a large KAL at one time for this pattern.
