Help! Translation needed!

This sweater, the Sunshine Wrap from August's Knit 'N Style Magazine, is my first project for myself in a long time. I am a little nervous because it needs to fit and I don't know anything about fitting patterns. But I loved the crossover tie and decided it might provide enough adjustment to counteract my shortcomings on that front.

I'm not making it in yellow, but in a lovely russet yarn our buddy Barbara Bretton gave me. I cast on and have navigated the first set of instructions without too much angst. However, I was reading ahead (as my teachers trained me to do in school) and came across this sentence and I am confused.

"Cont in St st, inc 1 st at each end of next and every foll 4th row twice, every RSR 4 times."

Could someone please tell me how many rows I'm supposed to increase on? I keep rereading this and I can't figure it out.

(Also any advice on the best increase method would be much appreciated. I feel like I read somewhere that it's better to increase on the second stitch of a row--but maybe that was in reference to decreasing instead.)

I'm depending on the experts here to unbefuddle me.
