So this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/boneyard-shawl
says to make the middle stitch in the first knit row. I am unsure how to maneuver the stitch markers after the pattern calls for the increases. I have been keeping the stitch markers in the same place and have somehow ended up with 6 stitches on one side and 8 on the other. Do I need to adjust for the new stitches made in the pattern?
