  1. How to Knit the Make One Left Increase (M1L)

    This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the make one left increase (M1L). This stitch is the compliment to the make one right increase (M1R). It is used to add stitches to your knitting and can be used any time a pattern calls for a Make One (M1) Increase. It is a mostly invisible increase that is clean and tight. This particular increase creates a right leaning stitch.
  2. How to Knit the Moss Stitch Increase

    This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the moss stitch increase. This technique is similar to the knit front and back increase (KFB), but rather than knitting a second time, you purl. The resulting effect is useful when increasing in patterns that have both knit and purl stitches next to each other, such as the moss stitch, seed stitch, or ribbing.

    This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the purl front and back increase. This technique is similar to the knit front and back increase and is used on the purl side of stockinette, or to stay in pattern when increasing purled stitches.The example shown is done on the knit side of stockinette, but you would not normally do that unless it was decorative.
  4. How to Knit the Knit Left Loop Increase (KLL)

    This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the knit left loop increase (KLL). This practically invisible increase is perfect for making symmetrical increases in adjacent stitches. Also known as the raised increase or lifted increase, it is the exact opposite of the knit right loop increase (KRL). Because the increase is created by lifting the stitch below, this technique tends to pull a little, but I think it's worth it for the invisible effect.
  5. How to Knit the Make One Right (M1R) Increase

    This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the make one right increase (M1R). This technique is used to add stitches to your knitting and can be used any time a pattern calls for a Make One (M1) Increase. This particular increase creates a left leaning stitch. It is also referred to as a strand or stranded increase.
  6. How to Knit The Make One Away Increase (M1A)

    This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the make one away increase. This is one of the most basic increase stitches, and is very simple to perform. Also known as Make One (M1), this technique uses a loop to add stitches to your knitting, similar to the backwards loop cast on. It is a slightly more loose increase and tends to make a small hole in the knitting.
  7. How to Knit the Knit Front and Back Increase (KFB)

    This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the knit front and back increase (kfb). Also known as the K1FB increase or the bar increase, this technique adds a stitch to your knitting to hep shape it for things like, hats, socks, or the sleeves of a sweater. It is a great way to increase ribbing because it is almost invisible in pattern.
