I am knitting a purse in the round and want to increase the width of it. I added a stitch at the beginning of each round for probably 8 rows or so and am now wondering if it is going to be lopsided. Should I have added at the marker and again at the halfway point? Should I start over doing it differently? I have knitted about 3 or 4 inches and will stop until I hear from some of you kind and helpful people. Thanks so much for your help. Barb

What are you knitting? The increase will put a spiral line around the tube, whether you do one or two increases in a row.

knitting a purse. I'm afraid that it will be poochy on the side where I have increased and look stupid. I'm not felting it so everything will show.
p.s. I grew up in North Olmsted and graduated HS from Fairview!

Sorry, but agree that you should
a) increase at both start of row and at half-way point
b) increase at start of row, before nmid marker, after mid marker and at end of row (usual method for sweaters)
c) evenly throughout row.

Thanks all for your input. I decided it was going to look nasty so I just ripped it all out and will start over, maybe with a different plan in mind. I do want to try increasing again to get the shape I'm looking for, so will keep all your suggestions in mind. Barb

does it have a bottom? If so, make the bottom larger and then you can do the sides straight up as before.??????? I guess I should have asked what shape it was before putting my two cents worth in huh? LOL
