You would kbpf if you wanted to increase in rib or seed st, but a kfb would do the same thing. The little bar looks like a purl stitch.

I'm actually finding that a m1 in garter stitch is pretty invisible, where it isn't in stockinette stitch and makes a line of purled stitches.

IS there an increase that's invisible in stockinette? The only thing I've found that doesn't show a bump/ridge/line is ... well I don't know if it has a real official name or not, and it only works if you're holding 2 strands. I call it the "bifurcated increase" ('cos it sounds all geeky and stuff) or the "kss" (for "knit strands separately"). Just knit each strand as a separate stitch and voila. It also has the benefit of being just about the easiest increase you can imagine. I think I have a photo somewhere... Ah! Yes, I do. But I should probably post it in What'cha Knitting? as an FO 'cos this thread is already listing heavily to OT.

Look on the increases page for KLL/KRL. They're pretty close to invisible, one st grows out of the one on the row below.

I posted the Raspberry Beret which has a good photo of what I'm talking about. But yes, the KRL/KLL are pretty hard to see. I still can't get the videos to play though.

Do other videos play? Does youtube work for you? If so, try my link for KH's channel.

I haven't had a problem with YouTube -- so far. I haven't tried all of the KH videos, but those two have been problematic all week. At least at work. I can't remember if I tried them from home yet or not.

So now I have 20. Obviously the yo's are causing me the problem. I have watched the video for doing yo's and they are increasing one. Sorry to be so dumb, but am still stumped.
Not dumb in the least. It's a good question. The main thing is to make sure that when you put the yarn over the right needle, you only have one loop for the yarn over. After the knit 2, bring the yarn to the front between the needles, then over the right needle and around to the front again so that you're ready to purl. After the p1, bring the yarn loosely over the right needle to the back and knit 2. That should give you the 18sts that you need.
