Not necessarily; loosen up if you're knitting tight and that should prevent the puckers.

Thinking about this again, I knit this pattern a while ago:
http://www.magknits.com/Aug05/picovoli.htm , it was knit top down with lots of kfb increases to form the raglan 'seams' and because they were done every row it did kind of pucker a bit but it actually looked right once it was all said and done. I wonder if that's what's happening?? I'm trying to find a good picture of what I mean......

Okay, this picture isn't very close up to show what I mean, but notice the raglan seams and how they're kind of holey and puckered?? That was all done with kfb increases. Is this what you mean?

Kind of only my holes were larger. I did end up frogging it before I thought of taking a photo to show. The knitting is really tight, so much so that it was difficult to put back on the needles once I took it apart. Part of my difficulty in doing it is because I have a problem going from knit to purl, leaving a large purl stitch so I think I overcompensated across the board.

I'm working on magknit's Blossom with has a garter stitch border: http://www.magknits.com/Jan06/patterns/blossom.htm
