I don't understand Entrelac Sirdar

Hello. Knitting Sirdar 1903 Entrelac Blanket… Stuck on row 3 line 2

K2, turn, p2 (i get)
Increase in 1st st, sl1, k1, psso, turn p3 turn

This bit I can’t figure out which needle the increase stitch should be on. By the time I’m purling 3 should there be 3 or 4 stitches on my needle?

The row before results in triangles so not sure if I am just confusing myself.

Thank you in advance

Increasing in the first stitch will leave you with 2sts on the right needle. Then work the s1,k1, psso. That’ll give you 3sts on the right needle. Then turn.

On each knit row, increase at the beginning of the row, knit the given number and then decrease. The decrease will incorporate one more stitch from the original triangle.
