Are you adding the stitches at the start of the row? Could you quote exactly what your pattern says please, so I can tell what to suggest.

If you're casting on at the start of the row, I would either knit on or do a cable cast on.  You can find videos of each here.

I've got 41 knit stitches on the needle, and for the next row it say "Cast on 7 sts at beginning of next 2 rows, then knit to end".

I'd use the method shown here:( Under 'casting on')
http://www.learntoknit.com/instructions_kn.php3
or here:

Basically, knit a new stitch into the final stitch of the previous row, then knit another new stitch into the one you have just made , & so on until you have 7 new stitches.  Then just start knitting back across them , to the end of the whole row
