Sleeve help

I’m starting with 54st for sleeves,after ribbing it says
Inc 1 st at each end of 5th and every following 9th row 11 times.78 sts So I increase on row 5 and then 9 rows after that increase right?
If I do this I end up with 98 sts:wall:

The only way I can figure you’re getting 98 st is that you are increasing every 5th row AND every 9th row.

I think you should be increasing on the 5th row, then the 9th row, then the 18th row, etc. The 5th is a one time only. This would give you 24 increase st and bring your total to 78.

Thank you:muah::hug::woot::cheering::woohoo:
