There are several different kinds of increases available. If you look at the Abbreviations Explained (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/abbreviations_explained/) tab above Amy has videos on increasing (near the bottom on the left).

Basically you use the stitch below to create a new loop and knit into the back of that.

No problem! I love this site but it is easy to miss things because there is so much available!
