This brings back memories. The very, very first stitch I ever knitted was a kfb increase with a CO of 1 stitch. (I don't count the CO 'cos I already knew how to tie a slipknot.) So I quite literally learned to increase before I learned how to do anything else!

When I started doing the next piece of that project, my Kninja Sensei made the same comment... just CO 2 and it'll be fine. Except... I didn't know how to cast on yet!
