An increase worked as follows:

2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.

Bluebird Beach Washcloth Reviewed by Jessica Rudolf Hallisey on 2013-04-26 *****
made this along with a few other washcloth patterns (laguna, rocky point) as gifts - quick & easy to knit and they were very happily received & used much! I did use LB organic cotton yarn, more $$, also meant I had to adjust gauge but soft & beautiful.
