KFB increases
I am knitting a Floppy Brim Chemo Cap. This is my first project for someone else. DH has an aunt who starts chemo this morning and I want to try to finish by tonight and ship it tomorrow.

I am almost done but the brim is giving me issues. For the brim you pick up 88 stitches at the base of the hat. Then knit for a round. On the next row, you knit 3 and then kfb 1, and continue for the entire row. After that, you knit 3 more rounds. On the next round you knit 4 and then kfb 1 and continue for the entire row. This is when I stopped and looked at my horrid work. Ever 3 stitches you can see a line where I did the increase.

Am I doing something wrong? Is this how the kfb is supposed to look? I ripped the entire thing out. I want to start again this morning but I am looking for some feedback. Thanks!

That's normal, but if you don't like it, you could stagger the increases so they won't be stacked over each other. On the 2nd inc row, kfb in the first stitch, then start k4, kfb, etc. On the next inc row (k5, kfb, right?), k2, kfb, k5, kfb...
That may help.
