Help to understand term in knitting wizard for sleeve increase


#1

I have a question regarding an instruction that says (sleeve increase child sweater_

Inc 1 st on each side every 2nd rw 6x (first row is a knit row)

Increase every other row at each end. That’ll be 2 increase sts per increase row. If you call the first inc row, row 1 then you would inc on rows 1,3,5,7,9 and 11.

Thank you Knitting wonderwoman.

Just don’t understand why the instructions didn’t say “Inc 1
st each end of row every knit row 6x” and provide total
stitches___, guess my brain is a bit dyslexic.

The instructions could equally well have been written that way. It could be the designer’s choice or an editor’s. Enjoy finishing the project!
