sleeves on sweater instructions help please
I'm not understanding this... This is how the pattern reads:

Sleeves - using the smaller needles, cast on 48 sts. Work in k 1, p 1 rib for in inch. Change to the larger needles and begin working stockinet st. Work 10 rows, ending after working in a p row.

Increase row - k 2, inc, k to within 4 sts. of end of row, inc, k 3.

Continue to work as established, increasing every 6th row until there are 80 sts. Work even on these sts. until sleeve measures 18 ins. from cast on edge. Bind off loosely. Repeat for other sleeve.

My question is... Where it says to increase every 6th row, Do I go back and do the stockinet st. for 5 rows and then do the increase row, stockinet st. for 5 rows then do the increase til I get to 18 inches? Did that make any sense? LOL.
Thanks in advance
