Increasing Stitches Evenly Over the Rows

learian3October 9, 2007

Thank you in advance to anyone with advice on the following. . . I am knitting a top down, toddler size cardigan. I'm having trouble knowing exactly where to put my increases. For example, I have 43 stitches on the needle and will need to increase those stitches to 54 evenly across the row. (I will be going from 54 to 82 next.) I know not to use my first stitches on either side of the fronts for the increase. Is there a formula, some system, which I can apply for each time I have to increase stitches evenly which allows me to know which stitch I'm going to "knit into the front and back" for my increase?

If you Google "increasing stitches evenly" there are several tutorials which will explain it. Here's one below but you should check out the others as well.

Thank you so much for this excellent resource. It brought back everything that I thought I knew but sure couldn't recapture as I stared at my needles. My needles are clicking thanks to you.
