stitch increase
Just me, again! I have followed the pattern correctly, I believe! However, on the rows where I had increases, there seems to be a "line". This happens at each row increase. Does this sound right? Is it possible that I didn't increase properly?? Thanks!

If you can post a picture that would probably help us see what you're seeing. And this sounds like it's a continuation of another question/thread. What are you making?

What are your instructions for the increase row and what kind of increase are you doing?

This is the instruction for one of the increases:
M: [k1, m1] 2 times, [k2, m1] 53 times,
k1, m1, k1.

But how are you doing the m1?

It sort of looks like you might be lifting the strand between sts and knitting it; if you knit tight that pulls on the yarn so it makes a noticeable line, especially when they're that close together. A better one might be the backward loop inc, which is called the M1A on the Increases page.

Hi, I did the KFB when I viewed the videos. Oh boy, I have put a TREMENDOUS amount of time into this sweater....I didn't know it made a difference when the instructions say M1 and that is it. This is suppose to be a gift for my daughter in law and I can't give her something that doesn't look right. I'm very upset right now. I'm too far into it to pull it all out. But, thank you for all your help. I'm just frustrated with myself and those instructions.

You don't have to rip all of it out. Unravel to the row above the one with the wrong incs, then insert the needle into the sts as you pull the last row out one by one. Use a smaller needle to make it easier.

I have almost 300 stitches on the needles. I can't go back to the increase row since there are several increase rows and they have a sizable amount of St st rows in between....It would just be too much work and too painful to do at this point... :-(
