At the top of the forum there are video and one whole section on increases. Check those to see which is which.

When you increase you just do it as the pattern says. Don't move any other stitches unless the instructions tell you to.

If it's only a couple stitches, that's probably the one they mean. Without the context in a pattern - how many sts do you have, how many are you supposed to `increase', have you bound off any on a previous row, etc - it's a little more difficult to just say yes or no.

Thanks for posting the link, those are cute.

Yes, just use the M1A to increase.
