Hi Debbie, We all think of this differently and at the risk of just confusing you further, here's the way I think of it. Basically, you're increasing one st at each end of the rows for the sleeve. You could increase all in knit sts, but you'd lose the pretty rib pattern, so ideally you'd like to incorporate the rib into the increases.
For the moment, just look at the increases on the right side of the sleeve.
Try this:
first increase row: k1, inc 1, k4 *p1,k5*...
2nd increase row: k1, inc 1, k5 *p1,k5*...
3rd increase row: k1, inc 1, p1, k5 *p1,k5*,,,
4th increase row: k1, inc 1, k1, p1, k5 *p1,k5*,,,
5th increase row: k1, inc 1, k2, p1, k5 *p1,k5*...
6th increase row: k1, inc 1, k3, p1, k5 *p1,k5*...
7th increase row: k1, inc 1, k4, p1, k5 *p1,k5*..
8th increase row: k1, inc 1, k5, p1, k5 *p1,k5*...
9th increase row: k1, inc 1, p1,k5, p1, k5 *p1,k5*...
You'll want to work the increases on the other side of the row so that they mirror these increases.
I'm not sure if this will help but it's the way I think of increases in pattern.

yes, I am kind of confused now. Will I lose the rib pattern if I do it the way suzeeq suggested because I thought had it finally. If I have to do it the other way you will have to give me the end of the row also so \i can understand it better.

I think you can do it either way. Tell you what.... CO 23 sts with some scrap yarn, work a few rows in the st pattern, then try the incs. If you can practice on it over a few sts it may make it easier for you to do it on your sweater.

OK, sorry for adding to the confusion. Our posts crossed because it took me so long to type.
We're basically saying the same thing. As long as it makes sense to you as Sue has written it out, follow her directions. You'll see that the pattern is coming out right as you go along. All the best with it and be sure and post a photo of the finished sweater!

Thanks guys, I'm really glad both ways are the same because I think I have the way suzeeq suggested. I have done a few rows and it seems to be working out . Thanks again. I'll post when I'm done.\
