what is foll alt?
Hi there - hope you can help.

I'm confused by the following insturctions:

"Inc 1 at each end of next and 2 foll alt rows"

I know that "foll alt" means "following alternate" but I still don't understand

The way I read the instructions I'll be knitting 3 rows total. At the begininning and the end of each row I increase 1 stitch. Is this right? Or do I do 6 rows increasing 1 at the beginning and end of every other row? I'm supposed to go from 26 to 32 stitches.
Then later I "decrease 1 st at each end of next and 3 foll alt rows", which is supposed to take me from 32 back to 24 stitches.

1) You increase on the next row.
2) Knit one row straight
3) increase on the next row
4) one straight
5) increase on the next row

Clear enough, I hope!
