Some patterns are poorly written or have typos and this appears to be one of them. If it looks right the way you did it, you did it right!

Next, I'll be increasing (from 14 stitches) and it says:
"At both edges of the work, increase 1 stitch at the beginning of the next 3 rows. Then also at both edges of the work, cast on 3 stitches once at the end of the row, using a loop cast on. You have now added 6 stitches at each edge of the work and have 26 stitches on the needle."
This seems like inc on both ends of the 3 rows, *then* CO 3sts at the end of the next *2* rows, which will give you 6 extra stitches on each side. 12+14=26, so that shoud be right. I think....
