:XX: I started knitting in October 2005 and I have made few scarves (5 to be exact) and one simple kids hat.
I am knitting my first sweater, i.e. sweater for my 3 yo son. The back and the front are done. I am working on the sleeves now and I have to do my first increase. I know how to do it. I will use the kfb (knit front back) inc. The pattern reads: "inc 1 st each edge of second RS row, then every 4th row 10 more times". My question is, if I should do the inc on the first/last st in the row, or should I do it on the second/second from the end st.
When I was shaping the neck, and I had to dec 1 st at each neck edge, an accomplished knitter told me not to knit the two last sts together, but to k2tog and always have 1 st at each edge just knitted. But I forgot to ask her if the same goes for increasing.
How do you do the increase when it is required to be done on the edge of a garment?
