Pattern question

This is a king cole pattern 4866

How would you read these pattern lines please:

K19, k2tog, (k18, k2tog) 3 times, k20. 97 sts.
P18, inc in next st, (p19, inc in next st) 3 times, p18. 101 sts.

I find this pattern very difficult to read and I would appreciate your help. Thank you.

Are the instructions saying anything about the increase? That is the only thing I think is not clear in these instructions. “Inc in next st” sounds like a PFB or KFB increase because the normal M1 is worked between stitches and not “in next st”.

This is how KFB and PFB are done: https://jo-creates.com/2018/02/27/how-to-knit-front-and-back-kfb-and-purl-front-and-back-pfb/

Hello!!

This is how I would do these 2 rows:

K19, k2tog, K18, k2tog, K18, k2tog, K18, k2tog, K20 (97 sts)
P18, increase in next st, P19, increase in next st, P19, increase in next st, P19, increase in next st, P18 (101 sts)

Is this what you needed? Please let us know if you need something else explained
