Hi there! Your sleeves look great. I'm knitting 1 sleeve and the back at the same time, and I'm hoping you can help. The pattern says to do the sleeve increases every 8th row, right after completing the cable - goes that mean after knitting 8 rows total (so 5 more rows after the first cable) you do an increase? Also - did you end up doing your increase on the Purl side(WS)? Seems the only way according to the numbering, but I want to double check. I'm at mamamarce@gmail.com if you have time to answer. Thanks!

LOL,Im afraid I didn't really read those instructions,going on my knitting experience more than anything.I just increased every 8 rows on the right side and cabled on the 10th row regardless of increases.I also counted the cables in photo to get an idea how many I needed on the sleeve for length,
hope that makes sense!
