Something doesn't add up; the stitch multiple is 6 the way you've written it and that doesn't go into 93. It could be you do row 7 like this - k6, p3 *k 3, p3* repeating between the *s and end with knit 6. That would work.

So your stitch repeat is 6, and you would add sts in multiples of 6 to make it wider - 6, 12, 18, etc.

Not just any even number, it has to be a multiple of 6 because of the repeating k3, p3 pattern. So inc by 6 sts, or 12, or 18 or 24.

Yes. The reason you add in multiples of 6, but the CO number would be an odd one is that you have 6 sts on each edge for a border, but in between you do p3, then the repeating stitches are k3, p3. It's the number of repeating sts you want to stick with.

Yes, you knit 9 sts at the end of the row. This is 3 from the end of the repeat and the 6 edge sts. And adding 48 works out fine.
