Knitting Increases

Knitting Increases
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. If I could use only three methods (and I pretty much do only use these three), they would be M1L, M1R, and Yarn Over (YO). The first two are the most discreet and invisible, and match each other symmetrically for the fussy among us. YO is, by contrast, intentionally visible: it creates a decorative hole in the knitting, which is used a lot in lace. The sampler below contains both increases and decreases.

Increasing Your Options by Sandi Rosner It is entirely possible to make a sweater without ever increasing or decreasing the number of stitches. Four plain rectangles can be sewn together to make a perfectly serviceable covering for your upper body and arms. Most of us, however, prefer our garments to bear some relationship to the shape of the body underneath. Producing such garments requires a working understanding of increases and decreases. In this article, we will take an in-depth look at increases. It started with The Lord of the Rings -- specifically, all of the tree motifs on Gondorian armor and clothing. I wanted a sweater with a tree on it. Unfortunately, the obvious way to get an image on a sweater is through colorwork. Baby Booties Without Seams (bottom up) A pattern by YarnThrower This pattern was inspired by Ruth's "Perfect" Baby Booties, though my construction method is quite different, eliminating the seam found along the back and center bottom of many baby bootie patterns. (After searching online **unsuccessfully** for a "seamless" baby bootie pattern, I decided to figure one out on my own...) This particular pattern begins at the bottom of the bootie and works up toward the cuff.
