118 Neckdown Swing Cardigan

"An easy to knit and wear cardigan, flattering to all in DK weight yarn at a gauge of 20 sts to 4 inches," says Soucy. "The V neck is deep, and the sleeves are kimono style. Sizes x-small through xx-large." This garment is absolutely flawlessly thought out. The sleeve length displays the slenderest part of your arm to pretty advantage; the length of the piece can be adjusted to cover your bottom, or not, as you please; and the subtle gathering under the bust is as modern as it is treasured by history. A scoopneck pullover version with the same shaping is available here.

Soucy offers a very detailed, illustrated knit-along guide to her top-down sweaters here.

I purchased the Neckdown Swing Cardigan and have a questions re: the pattern. Under the section "Divide for sleeves" It says "you are now working on the body sts only. Work in stockinette stitch, increasing at the front edges 5 more times."
Is that to be a regular increase(knit in front and back) or the M1 increase that we have been doing? And is that to be every 4th row like earlier in pattern or is it every row for the next 5 rows?

Thanks for the clarification
