I'm knitting this sweater and I got the front and back panels done just fine but I'm having problems transcribing the pattern for the sleeves. It says:

   Work in St st, inc 1 st at each end of the 5th and every foll 6th row until there are 60 sts, then on 5 foll 8th rows.
   Work even until sleeve measures 19" from cast on edge.

Does that mean I inc on the 5th, 10th, 15th...? But it says "and every foll 6th row." Do I then inc on rows 5, 6, 10, 11, 15, 16...? I have no idea for "5 foll 8th rows" either.
Work even means I don't inc or dec right?  Huh

In expanded form, working in stockinette (knit right side rows, purl wrong side rows) knit 4 rows. On row 5 (right side) increase at both ends of the row.

After that you increase at both ends of every 6th row, so you purl, knit, purl, knit, purl, knit with increases at both ends. Do that until you have 60 stitches.

Now you want to increase on the 8th row, so purl, knit, purl, knit, purl, knit, purl, then knit with increases at both ends. Now repeat those 8 rows 4 more times so you have increased on 5 "8th rows" (you should have 70 stitches).

Continue knitting in stockinette without increasing (or decreasing) until the piece is 19 inches long.

Increase on the 5th row and every 6th row after that which will keep them all on RS rows. So you inc on Row 5, 11, 17, 23, etc. Then after you have 60 sts, work 7 rows and inc on the 8th row, then every 8th row. Work even does mean to just knit in pattern with no incs (or decs if you find that phrase after a dec rows).
