Can anyone tell me what this means? TIA!
Hi everyone! I'm knitting a cap for my uncle, but don't quite understand this bit of the instructions (Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky Watch Cap):

"(RS) Knit across, increasing 2 sts evenly spaced - 75 (79) sts. "

I guess my question is, does it matter where I do the increase? I know how to increase, I'm just confused about whether or not there is a right way/place to do it for this pattern.

Thanks so much for your help!

Sounds like it doesn't much matter...maybe they're just setting you up for decreases to work out evenly later on or for a pattern stitch to work out?

Maybe just do 1 about a third of the way, then 2/3 of the way across?

Good Luck!
