Knitting - Sleeve

I am knitting the sleeve of a boat neck sweater and am confused by the instructions to increase the pattern. It reads: "Row 7: inc (knit in front and back): knit to last st., inc." It then says to Rep Rows 2 thur 7, 13 times more. Am I correct in assuming that I increase two stitches on row 7, a knit in the beginning of the row and a knit at the end of the row? Then I should continue with the sweater stitch. Row 8 is Purl, Row 9 is Knit, etc. It is the (knit in front and back) that is throwing me. Thank you very much for your help.
