Increase Pattern Help

I've been knittig for a few years but never encountered a pattern that had steps like the ones I have questions on. I am making a simple dog sweater and here is where I have questions.

The pattern states:
CO 7 sts. Working in k1, p1 rib, inc 1 st each edge every other row 0 (0, 0, 3) times, then every third row 7 (9, 13, 14) times 21, (25, 33, 41) sts on needle.

Q1: I am making the 3rd size. Am I correct that I begin my first increase on the 3rd row? I know intuitively that this I understand the pattern correctly but just want to be sure there isn't a typo in the pattern.
Q2: Do I do the increase 1 st in from the edge like most patterns call for?
Q3: How do I maintain the rib pattern after the increase?

Thanks in advance for your help.
