How do you increase beginning and end of a row?
One of the easiest ways to increase is at the beginning of a row. Insert the right-hand needle into the first stitch as if you were going to knit it, but before dropping the stitch off the left-hand needle use the tip of the right-hand needle to place the new stitch onto the left-hand needle.
What does increase mean knitting?
Introduction: Knitting Lessons: Increasing and Decreasing Stitches. When you increase stitches you are adding an extra stitch (or loop) to your needle. This will increase the length of your row by 1 stitch, thus increasing the width. When you decrease stitches you are removing a stitch (or loop) from your needle.
Why am I getting holes in my knitting?
A common way of accidentally adding stitches to a knitting project is by wrapping the yarn over the needle when you aren’t forming a stitch. This is known as a yarn over and is used deliberately in lace patterns and other patterns to make decorative holes and increase the number of stitches in a piece of knitting.
How do you fix random holes in knitting?
If you spot the hole right away, it’s simple to drop the offending yarn -over and absorb the extra yarn into the stitches on either side. If it is one or two rounds later, the newly formed column may be dropped and the yarn shared on each row.
