increases for darts ??? help 3rd rip back
I am doing a Rebecca pattern (you've probably seen the photo-- in the phot it is a brown halter with strass stones) --Anyway -- if you haven't I'll try to explain where I'm stuck--- this is my 3rd rip back to make it look right.

thissweater is knit in the round up until the two triange halter part- and then it is knit back and forth-- here goes the part ---

On fol RS row start with darts and front neck shaping (Iget the neck shaping): For darts mark sts 21-22 on either side of center front and work a yarn-over on either side of these two sts ( and on WS row P1 tbl on fol WS row)

Okay I understand that I am making an increase by these 2 markers; however, I am having a very difficult time not creating a hole --- the first atttempt I did the yarn-overs and there was a little hole. Next attempt . I did on the rs of the marker a M1F and the left a M1B-- problem with that was the M1F was leaving a little hole ( the big problem with these holes is pretty obvious -- in that I don't want liittle holes where my nipples are in the sweater!!

I would get it right on one side of the marker and then have a small hole ont the other side. I was trying so many different increase, I am not sure whidh ones worked best-- because some did not leave holes and some did.
I tried knitting in the loop of the row below ( but, I think - I forgot to knit in the back loop and knitted into the front..

Anyway--- can someone pleeeze insturct me on the best increases to use by the markers ????? and if there is a specific one by the right and left marker---

Thanks,

losing sleep in Naples ,

Just so you don't think you were doing the yo increases wrong, they're supposed to leave holes--eyelets basically.

When I do M1, I pick up the bar with the left needle from front to back and knit into the small loop at the back. This doesn't leave a hole. If you knit into the long strand of a M1 it will leave a hole. Are you sure you did the M1's correctly and knit into the small side?

:thinking: To be honest the M1's are the most invisible I can think of. You can try a kfb, but it might leave tiny holes, too.

when I do MIf I lift the bar w/ left needle from the front and knit into the back of the stitch ( that is the bar is on the left needle and I knit into the back of the bar on the left needle that has been lifted from the front with the left needle) -- I think because the bar has been stretched -- it does leave a small hole. I do not want any hole because it is where my nipple is on the sweater.
maybe I am not doing it right--- but I have watched the videos and I believe I am doing it right. It seems that when I lift the bar from the back and knit into the front of the bar on the left needle there is not a hole-- but it is so difficult to do-- I sometimes stretch the yarn and leave a hole. Any pother suggestions?
