How to Knit the Make Two Double Increase (M2)

This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the make two double increase (m2). This technique of adding stitches to share your knitted fabric uses a similar method to the stranded or lifted increase. It allows you to increase twice in-between stitches, which can be useful in top down hats and shawls.

Skill: Intermediate

Instructions:

Work your pattern until you reach the stitch where you want to increase.
Step 1: Insert your main needle into the strand in-between the stitches where you want to increase, going from front to back.
Step 2: Insert your working needle through the back loop of the strand on your main needle.
Step 3: Knit the stitch.
Step 4: Pull the stitch of the main needle.

Repeat this sequence once more using the same strand.
