Help needed please!

I’ve been teaching myself to knit for a while now, but I still get a bit muddled with patterns at times.
I’m knitting a new baby jacket. Can someone interpret this pattern for me please? I’ve tried to work it out that many times that I’ve got myself so confused!
It says:

INC ROW: k1, m1, knit to end (55sts)
K3 rows without shaping
Cont increasing at neck edge as set by inc row on next and foll 3 alt rows, then at neck edge of foll 2 rows. (61sts)

If anyone can tell me what to do, that would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance!


Welcome! Good for you for working your way through patterns. It’ll get easier the more you do.

[The increase rows are all going to start with a k1, m1 at the neck edge. Increase at the neck on rows 1 (the first inc row), 4,6,8,10 and then rows 11 and 12.] see below.

ETA: I’m sorry. I got that wrong. If you call the first row given in the pattern row 1, then knit 3 rows, the next row is row 5. The increases are then on rows 1, 5,7,9 and 11 and then 12 and 13.
