Has anyone ever made this?

There are instructions that say

M1 (Increase 1 stitch: taking 1 stitch to create 1 more stitch, resulting in 2 stitches total) is done as follows:
1. Knit into the back of the stitch in the row below the 1st stitch on the left needle.
2. knit into the front of the 1st stitch on the left needle.

So I reached down into the back of the stitch and knit it and then into the front of the stitch and then knit it (which is very hard to do) and then I knit the stich I was going into the back and front of. THen I knit on to the next set of stitches but then I always end up with 2 more stitches then required. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
