Yes that's the way to do the increases so that each increase row adds 2sts on row 6 and 2 on row 12. Keep the increased sts as edge sts in stockinette or whatever simple pattern will work (reverse stockinette?). Don't let them break up the main body of the pattern that you have going and don't let them shift the pattern over either. Sometimes the directions say to "work the increases into the pattern" but 2sts on each side by the end of row 12 may not be worth doing that. Possibly too, these sts will be on a seam line.
