I’m almost finished with my first sweater, but I need a little help with the hood. This is what the pattern says:
From RS, pick up and k 44 sts evenly spaced around neck edge.
Next Row: K, inc 12 sts evenly spaced across row – 56 sts. Work in garter st for 8in. Bind off. Fold bound-off edge in half and seam for top of Hood.
I have my stitches picked up, and now I need to increase 12 st. How should I do this? Do I just use a yo or is there another way I should be doing it?
