The Knit Right Loop Increase (KRL)

Stitch Description

The Knit Right Loop Increase is a method of shaping your fabric by adding stitches. This increase is nearly invisible, and keeps the surrounding fabric nice and smooth. It is great for creating symmetrical increases in adjacent stitches and is practically invisible. It does tend to pull a little, but its worth it for the effect it creates. It is also known as the Raised Increase, or Lifted Increase.
