More problems with pattern instructions!
Hi - I had originally posted this in the patterns section of the forum but now I'm wondering if this might be the section! Oops! Anyway, I am making my first jumper and have just started work on the sleeves. The pattern is formed by 10 rows of 39 stitches which are ribbed (K1 P2) with a cable panel in the middle. This is what the pattern says:

"Cont in patt, shaping sides by inc 1 st at each end of next and every foll 10th row to 49 sts, then on every foll 12th row until there are 51 sts, taking inc sts into patt."

So I have done the first 10 rows. Do I continue in the pattern and on the 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th rows increase one stitch at each end? This would get me to 49 stitches. Then on the 72nd row increase one at each end so I have 51?

Also, would the best method of increase be 'make one front' and 'make one back'?

Sorry for so many questions! Just want to be sure to do it right!! Thank you in advance.

That's the idea, but the first inc row may not be the 10th one. It's the 'next' row, and whether that's the row after your 10 rows of the cable panel or another one isn't clear. Probably, but then the first inc row is the 11th row, then inc on rows 21, 31, and so on to 49 sts, which would only take you to row 51. Then switching to the 12th row after that which is row 63. You can do m1f at one end and m1b on the other end of the row, or do m1L and m1R. Which inc doesn't matter so much, but people often like to make matching or paired ones so the new st leans toward the center of the sleeve. But it's up to you, what looks better to you too.
