I'll try that, thanks. Since it will be on the underside of the sweater and won't be seen much I'm tempted to just stitch it together any old way just to get it done and who cares if it's right or looks good, lol. This seaming thing is really discouraging me from ever making anything requiring seaming again!

The pattern specifically said to do the increases at the end of each row, as in the last stitch. So for future reference I shouldn't do it at the ends? How do I know when it's safe to deviate from what the pattern says?

Yes, the patterns do tend to say at the end of the row or at both ends but you'll get a feeling for what the finished item will look like and it'll be clear that you can go ahead and place the increases or decreases one or two sts in from the ends. For stockinette stitch you can almost always do this. For more complicated patterns, you may have to try it and see what works.
After you finish this sweater you'll have lots of experience behind you so you're already on your way to making these little changes. Don't let the seaming discourage you. It's worth the time and effort on this detail since you've already devoted so much to the body of the sweater.
