Perhaps someone could explain the meaning of the following instructions: ‘inc 1 st at neck edge of next and 8 foll 4th rows, then on 0 foll alt rows’?
I have 96?sts before starting this and I should reach 105 sts in the end as the result of the action described above. I do not understand when and how those extra 9!sts should be added. Thanks for the help!

Increase at the neck edge on the next row; then 8 repeats of one Inc on the neck edge every 4th row; (and zero repeats on the following alternate rows).
