What does it mean to "increase 2 sts evenly across row" and how is this done? Thanks for any help.

That distribution of stitches will provide an smooth transition from one row to another. Many thanks for the help!

I agree with Purlewise for both flat and round especially if there is a pattern to the knitting. I would like to add an alternate method for both because I really like to have options.

For a flat piece, I would divide the number of my sts roughly into thirds and add one stitch between the first third of the sts and the second third, then add the next st between the second third and last third. If there are 45 sts, then 45/3=15. Increase one stitch between the 15th and 16the sts and again between the 30th and 31st.

For a piece in the round, increase 1 st at the beginning of the round and one in the middle.

If you are making say, a sweater, I would increase 2 sts in from the side seams.

If you were making, say something in the round, I would put it at the midpoints.

It is a suggestion to increase two sts where you can. Usually not next to each other so they don't show. So "evenly across the row" means to divide your sts and place them evenly due to that division.
