Lifted Increases

My absolute favorite (and thus my default) method of increasing. Highly recommended for the thumb gusset increases and anywhere you’d like an unobtrusive leaning increase.

  • M1R (right increase): pick up the leg of the stitch underneath the stitch on the left hand needle and knit into it.
  • M1L (left increase): pick up the leg of the stitch 2 rows underneath the stitch on the right hand needle and knit into it.
