Hoodie Dog Coat - Help!
Hi-

I am anxious to start the Bernat Hoodie Dog Coat (from their website) for my pup, but am confused by the pattern and need an expert's help!

The first paragraph reads:

With larger needles, cast on 40 (46-58-82) sts. Knit 5 rows, inc 4 sts
evenly across last row. 44 (50-62-86) sts. Proceed in stocking st, inc
1 st at each end of needle on 3rd and every row to 50 (60-72-104)
sts, then on following alt rows to 54 (68-82-122) sts. Purl 1 row.

Can someone help translate what: Proceed in stocking st, inc
1 st at each end of needle on 3rd and every row to 50 (60-72-104)
sts, then on following alt rows to 54 (68-82-122) sts.
Means?

Do I increase two stitches on row 3, 6 and 9 until 50? Start increase at row 3 and cont to increase each row after?

And what does "on following alt rows mean"?

Please help!!!! Thanks
