Pattern says....
Inc row: (Inc) to end (24 sts).
How do I do this??
(nb 12 stitches on cast on before the Inc)

First off, usually inc means knitting in front and back of a knit stitch thereby ending up with two stitches with every one you knit (see Amy's video on increases KFB-knit front back on her free videos to see how it is done if you need to) and if you have 12 stitches on the needle and need to end with 24 then you need to knit in front and back of every stitch on that row.
