I also take this to mean that my increases (the inc 1 st at each end of 1st and every foll 12th row) will always be done in the 1st row of the pattern because after the 1st row, every foll 12th row will be the 1st row. Correct?
I think so. You're correct that if you inc 2 sts on 3 inc rows, you get an inc of 6 sts. The m1 is not part of the pattern, they're just explaining it to you on the first inc row, so you're not adding 12 sts, just 6. The pattern was set before you began the inc rows

Now you know that when you add the sts, you don't start the pattern repeat with the same st you did before you increased. That's what 'keep the continuity of the pattern' means. So after the first inc row you would probably just leave them in stockinette, knit them on the RS rows. That should keep the pattern sts inside the increases.
