No you knit a boarder of two stiches first then increase 5 stitches
I'm knitting one of the front pieces and the increasing is what makes it curve around at the bottom. Here's a picture to help
I don't think spreading the increases out over the row will work because then the curve won't be created and on alternate rows i have to decrease on the other side
one person suggest that I go this...
Knit to last 2 st from end of row. work back and forth this 2 sts for 5 times (K2, turn, P2, turn, K2, turn, P2, turn... etc) ending on a P2. Pick up 5 stitches along the 'strip' of extra bit knitted.
but I don't understand what they mean or how to do it?
