Reading pattern
Hello all,

I'm just starting out knitting and having problems reading my pattern for a blanket. I keep doing what I thing is right but it looks like it is only increasing on one side. Below is what the pattern is saying

Cast on 3 sts
Knit
Row 1: inc in first st, K to last 2sts, inc in next st, K1-2 sts increased.
Row 2: purl
Row 3: inc in first st, K to last 2sts, inc in next st, K1-2 sts increased.
Row 4: Knit
Repeat rows 1-4 until 131 sts

So what I'm doing is:
cast 3
knit
do an knitted increase, 1 knit, then another knitted increase
purl
(at this point there are 5 sts)do an knitted increase, 3 knit, then another knitted increase
knit

and repeat but as i said it seems like only one side is increasing. I'm i doing it right and maybe just being tighter on one side over the other?
