understanding my pattern

Hi I’m having a moment and don’t understand the following instruction:
the pattern says to inc 1 st at each end of the 3rd row, So I have that covered, then it says , and every foll 6th row until 49 sts. so my question is, is the 6th row included in the 3 or do i count 6 rows from the 3rd row?

Thanks Caroline

You’d count six rows from the third row. So increases would happen on Row 3, Row 9, Row 15, etc.

Thank you so much, that was a huge help :smile:
