Increasing stitches for sleeves

Help AGAIN!
I’m working on the sleeves and the pattern is asking me to the following:
Beg with a K row, now work in st st throughout as folls:
Inc 1 st at each end of 3rd and 2 [3:3:5:4:2:8:8:7] foll 14th [10th:8th: 6th:6th:6th:4th:4th:4th] rows,then on – [-:-:-:2:5:-:-:2] foll – [-:-:-: 4th: 4th: -: -: alt] rows. 43 [47: 49: 53: 55: 59: 61: 63: 65] sts.

What does this even mean? I am size 4 so I have 41 stitches to begin with and by the end I should have 53.

Thank you in advance.

What is the name of your pattern and designer?
Beg with a K row, now work in st st throughout as folls:
Inc 1 st at each end of 3rd and 5 foll 6th rows,then on - foll – rows. [53sts]
These are just the numbers for your size. It’s a good idea to circle those numbers as you go through the pattern. When there is a dash or a 0 or an x for your size, skip that direction.
You would increase on row 3 and then rows 9,15,21,27 and 33. You’ll be working 5 rows without any increases and then increasing on the 6th.

Thank you for clearing this up for me there is no way I would have worked that out on my own. It is a Rowan pattern, by GEORGIA FARRELL, ORCHID, ZB325-00006-ENP. is there a rule book to decipher patterns :thinking:

Drive by link. I suck at figuring these things out so won’t make it worse for you.
