Welcome!
What increase are you using? These instructions work for an increase that uses a stitch like a knit front and back (kfb).or knit right loop KRL).

Well when it said increase one I just presumed all increases meant one extra so I do a normal increase by pulling a stitch through the middle of the pattern it gives me that increase but I’m just left with this extra 4 loops on other needle I’m still confused now :sweat_smile:

That’s a fine increase but it’s not what this pattern needs in order for the distribution of increases to be correct.

You can do the increase between sts by:
Knit 1 (increase, k2) x3
or you can work the increase that uses up a stitch:
Knit 1 (kfb, k1) x3
