I thought so. Luckily wasn't something we could expect to see here.

I do like union tended increases. LOL

Hahahahaha! I've made some good ones, but fortunately they were just with my daughters. The most common ones I make (and usually fix) are with the bottom row of the keyboard. I'm typing with two fingers and apparently don't hit the bottom row hard enough.

So does that increase have a real official name? I do that on purpose when I need to increase in a project that's knit with 2 strands. It's easy, quick and best of all, invisible. But yeah, if you did it by accident, you'd NEVER figure out where that extra stitch came from.

Another gotcha is not getting both strands around the needle. It's easy to do, and you may not notice it until you get back to the same place on the next row/round. It won't actually HURT anything, but you might find a loose strand in the work that you can't tell where it's supposed to go. If it's on the inside/WS, it's no big deal, and it may not show even on the RS, but it's not something you'd actually WANT.

They are going to be a gift for my SIL's father who asked if I would knit him a pair of slippers to replace a pair that he's had for a LONG time and have big holes in them! I just hope he'll like them!
I hope you like the pattern!
I did a stitch-by-stitch video tutorial for it here:
