CPH sleeve

Hi all,
This is my first sweater and I am a little confused with the sleeve increase.  I was thinking that sleeve increases are typically made on the RS of the knitting but when I interpret the pattern, doing the increase row 8 is on the WS.  When the RS is row 1, row 8 is WS correct??  Also, would anyone recommend which type of increase they used?  I am thinking about M1. 

Thanks so much!  I am making my sleeves first (both at the same time) and will post them when I finish.
