When I have made shawls and things in the past, I have always done the increase one stitch in from the edge - but as I'm knitting this in the round, I've confused myself...
k1f&b, k1, marker, k1, k1f&b
Normally, if a pattern wants you to do this, it would read "k to within 2 sts of marker, inc (k1f&b), k1, slip marker, k1, inc (k1f&b).
Soooo.... with that in mind, I would just inc into the st before the marker, slip marker and inc into the st after marker.
