So in other words, I would--K2- increase 1 from the bar below-K1-increase 1 from the bar below-K3
Then that would throw off the stitch count. Because kfb uses a stitch for an increase, and the others don't, you'd have to shift the M1 inc over a stitch. So it would go -
k3, m1, k1, m1, k2

And if the sts are too tight to do a kfb, maybe you're knitting too tight. There should be enough give in a st to easily do a kfb or k2tog or whatever.
