A link to the pattern would be super helpful. There's hundreds of bootie patterns so it's hard to know just what this one calls for. It may be two increases.

While worded oddly, and confusingly to the new knitter, 'M1 IN next st' is actually a kfb, NOT a M1. You should do kfb, kfb.

I'd do what you said as Plan A. That's what I'd do, too. K1, m1, K1, m1. (2 st increased)

Cute booties. I agree with the response to your other thread. http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=115571 Use kfb.

Unless I'm quite confused, there are two threads with this precise title by the same OP: http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=115571.

Can they be combined?

Thanks very much for the link. There really isn't an exact answer to the meaning of this line or the following increase lines.
Row 7: K2, m1 in next 2 sts, k10, m1 in next 4 sts, k2, m1 in next 4 sts, k10, m1 in next 2 sts, k2 (50 sts).
Many increases will work so that it's a matter of personal preference. What is important is the way you count the stitches and the increases. Kfb is easy and it uses the stitch as part of the increase but if you don't like the bump that is leaves there are other increases. Your favorite increase between the needles will work, too as long as you use your plan A (thank you ArtLady!): m1, k1, m1, k1.
