cast on 10 st
1- k one row
2- beg with p row, cont in st st inc one st at beg of next row and at same edge on foll 9 rows (which I assume means that I need to inc one st at beg of row for 9 rows) then on foll three alt rows, then on 2 foll fourth rows ending up with 25sts, this is where am stuck!! when they say foll 3 alt rows do I knit three rows and inc at the third? and what do they mean by inc on 2 foll fourth rows
