So how DO you know where to increase?
Well, Nuno, I am math-impaired, so this took me ages to figure out! I looked in several books, and many had a section about increasing "evenly across." I don't feel comfortable enough to explain it to anyone! I hope someone here will jump in -- you might need to start a new thread so they see your question. In the meantime, these *might* help:

http://www.thedietdiary.com/knitting...enlySpace.html (sure wish I had found this before my math-horror weekend!)

Apparently there is also at least one software product that will do all this for you. Might be worth it for me. :rollseyes:

Good luck,
