Not sure how to ask this but I am unhappy with the results of my increase and not sure if there are any tips you can give. The pattern is:
Inc row: k10, m1, k15, m1, k10 (37 sts).
Inc row: k11, m1, k15, m1, k11 (39 sts).
Inc row: k12, m1, k15, m1, k12 (41 sts).
Inc row: k13, m1, k15, m1, k13 (43 sts).
Inc row: k14, m1, k15, m1, k14 (45 sts).
When I m1, I am having a hard time finding the "horizontal thread" between the two knits because of the location of the m1 in the row below. Would that make sense? Also, the pattern is for a stuffed animal and everywhere else I am alternating between purling and knitting rows so it is a stockinette stitch look. I feel like I am reading the pattern wrong since this is the only place I am knitting every row. Looks strange. There is nothing I am misunderstanding in the above pattern that would tell me otherwise right?
