Hi, I’m starting the textured ear flap hat in 60 more quick knits but I can’t figure out the increase rows and how to work increase stitches into pattern. Below I’ll post the instructions.

How do I do the increases? I start with 14 stitches and the set up row is not labeled row 1, so the way I read it I’m on row 3 when I increase and do the increases in purl. But then it says to repeat increase row every alternate 4th and 2nd row. Can anyone explain this to me in an easier to understand way? Thanks!
