I am knitting an afghan with Taku mi 13 needles.
are you working a pattern or is it a straight stitch like garter or stockinette?
I would make a stitch gauge sample with the smaller needles to see how many stitches per inch.
Figure out how many stitches you will need to match the width of the current piece.
Take that number and subtract the number of stitches you currently have with the size 13 needles. (new stitch count - original stitch count = difference)
Divide the original number of stitches by the difference.
that is how many stitches I would do between increases
Let me use an example:
Say your original work had 75 stitches
From the gauge sample you know you need 100 stitches to make the same width
Now divide 75 by 25=3
Ffter every third stitch, I would put in an increase
that way the increases should work evenly across your piece.
This will be more challenging if you are working a pattern but the goal is to work the increases in as evenly as possible with as little impact as possible on the pattern being knitted. That might mean doing 2 increases every 6 stitches because it fits the pattern better.
