I'm trying to knit my first pair of gloves. The pattern says to "inc. 1 st in next st." What kind of increase should I use? I don't know the different kinds. I was planning on watching the videos on this site. Also, I imagine there will be decreases as well, though I haven't gotten to that part yet. Is there a specific type for that as well? Lastly, should stitches be slipped knit-wise or purl-wise?
Here is the pattern, if that helps: http://www.freevintageknitting.com/m...s-pattern.html
