I'm Vickie Howell from DIY’s Knitty Gritty, and I'm going to teach you how to increase. Increasing is a way of shaping that literally increases the amount of stitches that you have in your needle. Come on down to my handy dandy swatch. As you can see, the increases here, here, here, and here have changed a regular straight piece into a shaped piece. I'm going to teach you three different styles of increasing today. We're going to have the make one, the lifted increase, and the bar increase. Alright, let's start it. The first one I'm going to do is called the make one. In the pattern it will look like M1. What you need to do is go in between your stitches and you’ll see that there's this little ladder. What you want to do is pick up the top loop or ladder, place it on your needle and then just knit through it. There you’ve increase the stitch. Easy as that. The next increase I want to show you is called the lifted increase. It’s called that because you're literally lifting the stitch from the row below, placing it on your needle and then knitting into it to create another stitch. Now you just increased the lifted method. The last one I'm going to show you is called the bar increase. You’re going to knit both in the front and in the back of the stitch, turning one stitch into two. Let me show you one more time. You're going to knit in the front and then knit in the back. And you can see this is called the bar increase because it creates a little bar in front of one of the stitches that you’ve created. That’s all there is to it. So now, guess what people, not only increase your stitches, you’ve also increase your knitting knowledge.
