I need to add stitches but...
I know several methods of increasing, but I am really stuck here.
I am making a baby sweater that I have made before, but I forgot how to add stitches, and I cant find a how to anywhere. I am new to this, so forgive me if I dont explain very well. (also, english is my 2nd language)
I am knitting on 2 needles, I started the sweater on the bottom hem of the back side. I am now to the part where I need to make the sleeves. I have a knitted a square and I need to add 25 stitches to each side of my square, how do I do this?

Cast 25 stitches onto your needle, work across the sweater stitches, then cast on 25 more.

This sounds right. How do I cast on additional stitches to a piece I have already started? Is there a video for this somewhere? I have been trying, and it does not seem to be working correctly.

Knit or cable cast on would be used here. The cast on videos will show you how. Do them at the beg of the row, the first st on the needle will substitute for a slipknot as shown in the video.
