I'm knitting a phildar pattern for a jacket which requires multiple increasing within a border of 2 stitches...

basically the instructions are to knit two stitches on the right hand side of the rs then increase 5 stitches then continue knitting the remaining stitches

The pattern doesn't suggest an increase method so I basically kfb 5 times but this has caused the piece to pucker so that it won't sit flat

can anyone suggest a better way to increase mutliple stitches? any help would e appreciated. Thanks

Sure that isn't 5 increases evenly spaced between the border stitches? Usualy when there's an increase of more than 2 at once, the patterns call for casting on the number of stitches.

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?

That would be knittin on just two sts at the beginning of the row for 5 rows and I don't think that's going to work. You'd have a hole. Do the pattern notes say anything about how to make a 5 st increase? Unless you don't do it all on the same row..... Maybe you add one st at the front edge 5 times. Like this -- K2, inc1, k across, then purl back; next row repeat. That would add a gradual curve on the front edge over 10 rows.

I think you'll get the curve if you spread out the increases over the stitches closes to the curved edge. 

In this: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=95&d_id=5&lang=en
and this: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=95&d_id=3&lang=en pattern, they tell you to do that, and the end shape seems similar to the one you're looking for.
