Pattern question.

Hi all, I've been plugging along on a sweater for my little girl, and am a bit confused about the sleeves bit..

Inc row
(WS): Rib 1 (2, 3), * m1, rib 5; rep from * to last 2 (3, 4) sts, m1, rib 2 (3, 4). [34, 36, 38 sts]
(What in the world is this talking about?)

This is after the k1, p1 rib for the sleeve. I know it wants me to work on the Wrong Side, but I dunno what they mean by that whole Rib xx stuff...

After some timely help from

After some timely help from MMario, I finally finished it. Boy that baby yarn is tricky to work with it's so thin and slippery.

Firstly, eliminate all the

Firstly, eliminate all the additional numbers for the mutiple sizes.

Which gives you:

(WS) Rib 1, * m1, rib 5, rep from * to last 2 , m1, rib 2.

YOu are increasing on a wrong side row. Work 1 stitch in pattern; then make one, work five stitches in pattern. repeat the make one, work 5 stiches in pattern until two stitches remain. make one. work the last two stitches in pattern.

So in essence what they are

So in essence what they are saying is...

On the wrong side, k1 p1, increase, k1 p1 five more times, and repeat [increase, k1, p1 5 times] till I get to the last two stitches add another stitch, k1 p1 2 more times and I should wind up with 34 stitches on the needles.

Then do a stockinette stitch for 7 rows, on the 7th row add a stitch on the end, and then every 5th row afterwards till I wind up with 44 stitches, do 7 more rows and bind off.

Sound right?

The stockinette rows come

The stockinette rows come after you have done all the increases in the final row of the ribbing. I think it should say inc. 1 st at EACH end of 7th row.
