You increase into the stitch before each marker and after each marker in addition to the first and last stitch.

When they say work to within 1 stitch of next marker, they're just saying to work until there is one stitch remaining before the marker.

You caston 2, then caston another 11, then I presume you caston more, so you count the total number of stitches you CO. There's 2 sts before the first marker when you slip markers. After you've started increasing, there's 2 more, then 2 more than that with each increase row. Or maybe I'm not understanding what you want to know....?

You'll start with 2 before the first marker. Increase in the first one for the beginning of the row increase, and increase in the second for the before-the-marker increase. As you progress, there will be stitches in between those, so you will actually be working to the one stitch before the marker in that section.
