Alright....after I stayed up last night to watch Knitty Gritty I went to bed w/a question on my mind. They were making a felted purse and doing increases. On this show, they did not do increases the way I was shown to do them (knitting front and back), but they did something they called making stitches where you picked up something between two stiches and put it on your needle. The lady said that the reason you do this is because if you did it the other way you come up w/a different stitch count? How could this be if you are still increasing the same amount of stitches??? Wouldn't the stitch count be the same either way?
Thanks for any answers!!
