Best Way to Increase
I have just received the Sunny Days Blanket for the Oddball Blanket KAL. There are supposed to be 100 stiches and there are only 98. I have watched the videos to see the different ways of increasing. I was wanting to get some ideas on what the best way is and where it won't be very noticable.

The M1 increase is probably the least noticeable.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

best is subjective.

the best increase for lace is a yarn over.

the best increase for a sock is a raised increase (well i think it is!)

There is no BEST anything. There is only what is Best for you, and what you are knitting.


you are the authority on your knitting.

don't look to others to decide for you. decide for your self!

knitting is ultimately a very personal, and very empowering thing to do. take advantage.

To add on to of troy's post, best is what looks best to you. We all make our stitches differently, and what one person makes well may be an inc that another person always messes up on. So experiment with them and do the one that looks good to you.
