I am knitting a baby sweater. After you cast on and knit a few rows, the pattern says:
-(RS) Knit and increase 3 (3, 5) sts evenly across - 76 (80, 86) sts
Question 1- if the pattern doesn't say what kind of increase- what kind should I make? If there isn't a definite answer, what increase would you use?
Question 2- It says to evenly distribute the sts- how exact do I have to be? For the first row, if I make 1 increase 3 stitches from the beginning, should I make the last increase 3 stitches from the end? Does it matter?
It's this pattern: http://www.knittingdaily.com/media/p/27398.aspx
