Question on Increase
I have this instruction in a beret pattern:

Quote:
*K1, M1knit-wise, K1, P1, M1 purl-wise, P1* At the end of this round you should have 72 stitches.
I know this is stupid, but remember, it's me... Since she suggests this increase could I still use a bar increase since I like the look better and I honestly think it would compliment the beret better than what she is suggesting... Or, will it make too huge of a difference? I'm swatching on some remnant yarn right now and can't see a real difference.

I personally love the increase suggested (KLL), but there aren't any knitting police so you can use whatever you like best. Just remember that KFB (bar increase) does leave that telltale bar so if you're okay with that then go for it.

By bar increase, do you mean kfb/pfb? If so you'll have to do it in the knit or purl st, not k1, kfb or p1 pfb.

I did it with the bar increase. I'll post a pic after I'm done with it. The yarn is so bulky, that I don't think it will even be discernible after it's washed. I'm going to try her KLL on the next one I do for the charity basket, just to see the difference in the yarn.
