Need Help Avoiding Pooling while increasing...
Hi All! I'm new here, but have used the tutorials to guide me through a lot of my knitting projects.

I'm still a relatively new knitter...and while knitting a pair of medium sized Sheepypants, I am having some pooling when I start to add stitches before the gusset. I have a beautiful hand painted yarn, and know that once I am through the gusset and back onto the legs, there will be no pooling at all...and then my pants will just look silly!

I know that I would add stitches in the inseam if I wanted to avoid pooling on the legs, but where would I put an increase in the body of my knitting? And have it hidden? Since they're pants, the body will be seen all the time.....

Sooo...if anyone can offer any help, I would greatly appreciate it! With where to place one and what kind of an increase to use.

You may be able to cut a few inches out of your yarn to disrupt the color changes and avoid it that way.
