The DUMBEST question ever ...
OK - so some of you know I'm knitting a "hoodie" ... I've now completed the back, front and both sleeves.

So my last challenge is "the hood".

Patterns says:

Cast on 17 stitches.
Shape Right Side-
1st row - P3, knit to end. (easy)
2nd row - Purl to last 3 sts, K3. (easy)
3rd row - Sl 1, P2, knit to last st, inc in last st ... (18 sts).
Rep last 2 rows until there are 36 sts.

OK - seem easy enough but the slip stick is bugging me - can some one tell me if I'm doing this wrong?

1) What I do is simply "slip" it from the left needle to the right one without actually making a stitch. seems to leave a feathery edge so I've stopped.

2) when you increase into a stitch, what's the best way to do this?

eternal thanks from David
