need help understanding pattern...
I'm pretty new to knitting and I've started making a dress for my puppy which I thought would be pretty simple But there's a part in the pattern that is kind of confusing to me.... Here is what it says (the part in red is what I'm confused about):

Quote:
Cast on 30 sts for neck and work in st st. Increase one st at each end of fifth row.

Continue in st st, increasing 1 st at each end of each following sixth (RS) row until there are 40 sts. Continue working in stst until piece measures 10 to 11" long.
Here is what I did.... can you tell me if this is right?

I cast on 30 stitches and worked in stockinette stitch then when I got to the 5th row, I increased a stitch at each end of the row. Then I increased a stitch at the beginning and end of the 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th rows and then I had 40 stitches on my needle. I've continued working in stockinette stitch and haven't increased anymore.

Did I interpret the instructions correctly? Thanks in advance for your help!

Based on those instructions I would have increased on rows 5, 11, 17, 23 and 29.

The work 'following' means 'after' so inc on the 5th row, but then it should be the 6th row after that one, and the 6th row after that and the 6th row after that....
