Problem with monkey paws

The pattern is:
With 5 needles, cast on 8sts.
Beg with a p row, work 3 rows st st.
Inc 1 st at each end of next row, then EOR twice, then on following 4th row. (16sts.)
St st 3 rows.

I’m confused on the part that says “Inc 1 st at each end of next row, then EOR twice, then on following 4th row. (16sts.)” can someone please explain this to me?

I usually put the increase one stitch in from each end. You would knit 1, increase one st, knit 6, increase one stitch, knit 1. You can use your favorite increase here or take a look at the increases under the Free Videos at the top of the page.
Row 1 is a purl row so the first increase is on row 4, a knit row and then every other row 2 times. That’s an increase on rows 6 and 8. The following 4th row is row 12.
