Why do I keep getting more stitches when I knit?

How do you increase stitches evenly in a row?
To increase several stitches evenly across a row, you must figure out the best spacing for these increases in the same row.
- Take the number of stitches to be added and add 1.
- Divide the total number of stitches on your needle by the number of spaces between the increases.
