You could k, p, k, p into one stitch, or pkpk into one stitch depending on what would come next in pattern. It won't be perfect, but just work those in pattern on the next row and they'll blend in.

Amy has this increase technique for moss

http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...s/increase.php

Aren't you being asked to increase 3 stitches into 6 stitches which is what the video of Amy's would do??? In other words you K,P in each stitch (I'm not that good at this stuff so I've only proposing an idea) :-)

Susan, that sounds like the correct way to do the increases. Not all at once, but over a coupla stitches.

triple increase in moss st
I rec'd a call from the Phildar translators who are in France today. They will email me with specific directions. When they do, I'll post them here. I tried Amy's moss st inc and it is the closest I've come to getting it right but it surely is not perfect. Thanks for your help.
