Knitting - Basic Techniques

The number of stitches on the needle can be increased in a number of ways: increasing 1 stitch or multiple stitches at a time. When working increases at side edges, itís best to work the increase(s) 1 stitch in from the edge, leaving a smooth edge for seaming.

Increasing Multiple Stitches

Increasing 2 stitches or more at once is done from the side with the yarn. Any cast-on method may be used, the loop cast-on and knit cast-on are illustrated in both stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch.

Loop cast-on:

A method for increasing stitches by looping the yarn around the needle while looking at the front of the knitted fabric. Itís easy to do and is even suitable for thick yarn.

knit-on cast-on:

Illustrated in both stockinette stitch and reverse stockinette stitch. Because this technique creates a thicker and tighter stitch than the loop cast-on, it is suitable for thin yarn.
