Working in the round with DPN's

Hi Everyone! I am new to the site and hope someone can help me. I am working on the pattern Georgie Giraffe Ornament. The first few rounds read:
Cast on 6 stitches and begin working in the round
Round 1: Work increase around: 12 sts
Round 2: (K1, work Increase) around: 18 sts
Round 3: (K2, work Increase) around: 24 sts
Round 4: (K3, work Increase around: 30 sts
I get the first two lines. I’m not sure about Rounds 2-4. Does it mean K the first stitch then Increase the rest on each DPN? I can’t seem to make the stitches come out to what they have listed.
Any help would be appreciated!

Round 2 is K1, increase, repeat those two steps all the way around. The instructions in brackets are what’s to be repeated. If K1 came before the brackets, you’d knit 1 then just increase for the rest of the round.
You’re going to be increasing by 6 each round, for now.
