The slip stitches at the beginning of each row are just to make a smooth chainlike edge, which is why the increase is in the next stitch. The `18 sts' at the end of the 1st row is to tell you you'll still have the 18 sts left that you started with - the increase and decrease on that row balance each other and make it slant.
