Pattern help please!

:muah: Hi,
I’m starting to knit the cutest little shoe/booties from the Debbie Bliss Baby Knit book.
As usual, I need some help with the pattern. Here is how the pattern reads:
[B]Work in garter st and inc one st at each end of next and every foll alt row until there are 32 sts.[/B]
[B]Dec one st at each end of next and every foll alt row until 18 sts rem.[/B]
NOW does this all mean that I should increase a stitch at the beginning [B]and[/B] end of a row, then knit a row, then increase the same way, then knit, then increase etc until I get 32 stitches
THEN I should decrease a stitch at the beginning and end of row, then regular knit a row, then decrease the same way, then knit a row, then decrease etc. until I get 18?

[B]THANK YOU SO MUCH[/B] for any help, :hug:
