Help with mittens pattern?

I'm working on the pattern linked above. But I'm not sure if I'm reading the pattern correctly or if she forgot some information, but this is the part I'm having trouble with.

"Begin Gusset:
Row 1: K12, pm, M1, K2, M1, pm, K to end.
Rows 2&3: Knit.
Row 4: K to m, M1, K4, M1, K to end.
Rows 5&6: Knit.
Repeat as established: Increasing every third round. The number of stitches between M1s will increase by 2 for each increase round. Final gusset increase round will be:
K to m, M1, K12, M1, K to end.
Knit 5 rounds plain."

Can anyone tell me exactly what I'm supposed to be repeating... or how many times I'm repeating it? I'm on the first row of the gusset part, and I don't want to continue until I know exactly what I'm doing.

For some reason or another I can't post a comment on her blog, but I did leave a comment on her mittens pattern on Ravelry.
