If you're supposed to increase 'evenly' across the row, that means evenly spaced. So you would knit X, inc, knit x, inc, knit x, inc, etc. What are you making, where are the increases and how many are you starting with? The more information you can post (but not the entire pattern) the more specifically we can help you.
I'm trying to follow a chart for a knitted Christmas stocking!
Instructions for front, are very vague. Cast on 13 sts. Work chart in stocking st to end of chart reading knitting rows from right to left and purl rows from left to right.
Chart shows increases on both sides of foot and seem to be on the purl side only. I tried turning the work and increasing, then turning again and purling the row but thats does not seem right.
New to this Forum and chart reading. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jenny B.
You could purl into the front and back of the stitch, or use a purl M1 increase one stitch in, which I think would look better. So on the purl side, you'd knit 1, increase by lifting the bar between the stitches by putting the left tip of the needle from back to front, and then purling into the front of the loop.
There are videos on the M1 purl.
