There are many different ways of knitting which amazingly produce the same results. People hold needles differently (some even like to hold long needles under their arms) and throw the yarn in a different way to produce stitches.
An increase is simply adding a stitch to the knitting . Consider all of the ways you could create a new loop of yarn on the needle. Each way is likely to have been named and used by someone.
I had an e-mail the other day about this, namely that they were the only person in their area who knit Eastern style, and did I have any information about it? And I realized I've never discussed the topic here, and it's an under-discussed topic in general, so here we go.
view video How to turn the heel, pick up gusset stitches, and decrease gusset. Follows pattern of North Country Cotton Baby/Toddler socks (free in patterns page). Also similar to patterns in The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns, and many other basic top-down socks. This video ends a little abruptly.
When increasing evenly on both sides of a piece, as in a sleeve increase, a good tip is to work the increases inward from the edges of the knitting in two different rows. An easy rule of thumb is to work increases on the right side of a piece on a RS (right side) row, and work the increases on the left side of the piece on a WS (wrong side) row. The instructions below are written to increase 1 st on each side over 2 rows.
This fitted pullover is knit from the top down and requires very little yarn. The body is generous in length featuring deep ribbing and raglan sleeve shaping.
[ A small typo in the yolk instructions was corrected recently, so if you printed this pattern out previously, you'll need a copy of the new version - Thanks! Jenny] This is a snuggly sweater good for lounging around or going out.
