Bar increase
Hi
I'm making a headband. k1 p1 rib. Doing the increases. I have 2 knit stitches together on the right side. Exactly as the pattern says I should. Next row says m1B beteween the two center stitches. When I do that I then have 3 purls on the next row instead of p k p. I need to know what bar increase will give me the k p k . Thanks in advance for the help. The pattern is t Matthews fine art headband ear warmer thick yarn version. row 10 is fine row 11 is the problem. Then row 12 has 3 purls.

You can do the M1 as a purl st between the 2 knits facing you, which will look like a knit between 2 purls on the next row.

How do I do that? I've tried all the bar increases in the videos and glossary videos.

I'm not sure what you mean by bar increase - some people call kfb that, others use it for when you lift the yarn between sts and knit or purl into it with a twist. That's called M1R or L and instead of knitting into it, purl into it. It's easiest if you insert the L needle into the strand from the back to front, then purl into the front leg; that twists it close. Or you can do just a m1a, a backward loop, on the needle and it doesn't really show as either a knit or purl. Then on the next row knit it to keep in pattern.

The pattern actually gives you the method to use to increase.
"m1B From the back, lift loop between stitches with the left needle, purl into the front of loop"
On the next row when you get to the center sts, p, k, p those sts.
