So you should inc after alternating every 6th and 7th stitch like this: Work 6 sts, make 1st inc, work 7 sts, make 2nd inc, work 6 sts, make 3rd inc, work 7 sts, make 4th inc, and continue like this. After your 21st increase you will have 4 sts left on row to work. Example 3: You have 48 sts and you shall increase 12 sts evenly
Increases every 3rd row result in an angle of approximately 30°. Don't let the images mislead you: the grid is square but gauge usually is not! Therefor, the images do not reflect the resulting angles accurately. Increases every other row yield angles of approximately 45° inc (or dec) every four (six, eight, or whatever) rows: Increase or decrease on a (usually) right-side row, and then work three (five, seven, or whatever) rows without shaping. Increase or decrease on the next row. This is how the increases along a sleeve seam are written . You will always make your crocodile stitch increases on your foundation rounds. Now to relate this basic framework to making crocodile stitch increases in the round. On the third increase round, however, the new stitches will be purls, so you'll have a single purl rib separating your new 2-knit ribs from the original center rib, and then after the 4th increase round, you'll have a 2-purl rib on either side of the original center knit rib, and you'll be back in pattern; the 5th through 8th increase rounds will just be a repetition of the first four Knitting in the round, let's look at increasing 11 stitches on a row where you had 100 stitches to begin. Again, that is one stitch every 9.09 stitches. Here, you'd have to cheat again, but you would increase 1 stitch every 9th stitch 10 times and 1 stitch every 10th stitch 1 time
Row 1 (RS): Knit. Row 2 (WS): Purl. This means that on Row 1, which is the right side of the piece (RS), you will knit all 12 stitches on the needle. Then for Row 2, the wrong side (WS) of the piece, you will purl every stitch. The pattern may now say: Rep Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures 4 from the beginning, ending with a WS row Row 40 (5th increase row): Increase 1 stitch at each end of the row = 2 stitched added. This is a very common instruction in shaped patterns. I often have a separate pen and paper where I map out the rows (like I did in the 2nd and 3rd translations above) to make sure I do all of the proper increases
How to Knit & Purl Stitch. To make an increase in knitting, you need to add an extra stitch (or loop) to your needle. This increases the length of your row by 1 stitch, thereby increasing the width. There are multiple ways to do this and each method produces a unique look. I want to share with you the method I find the most simple Increase or decrease 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row/round/cm alternately a total of 10 times! Example 1: You inc/dec 1 st on every 3rd and 4th row/round/cm alternately a total of 10 times. Do like this: Work 2 rows, inc/dec on the 3rd row. Work 3 rows, inc/dec on the 4th row. Work 2 rows, inc/dec on the 3rd row. Work 3 rows, inc/dec on the 4th row The arrows show the increase/decrease row. (More about this later.) This is how to interpret every 4th row. Dec Round: Make the dec. First Round: Knit Second Round: Knit Third Round: Knit Fourth Round AND Dec Rnd: Make the dec. This photograph shows how to place increases and decreases every other RS row or every 4th row. Again, the arrows.
On the first repeat you will increase on row 3, and then every 3rd row after that. The tick chart contains a circle for every increase row. Although the edging looks complicated, it is essentially a 1x1 twisted rib, with a k2tog and yo which creates the waves . Short rows can be used to shape shoulders, custom fit the bust area, and impart design elements such as staggered stripes Alternate rows means every other row. So next row and 3 following alternate rows2 means you increase 1 stitch at each end of rows 1,3,5 and 7. Rows 2,4 and 6 you work with no shaping. You should then have 13 stitches at the end of row
. A faster rate of increase (i.e., every other row) will mean they'll meet in the middle in fewer rows, for a shallower V. A slower rate of increase (i.e., every fourth row, or more) will mean they take more rows to meet, for a deeper V When the pattern says decrease 1 st at each end of the needle every 3rd row does that mean, for example, 1st row (right side-knitting), 2nd row is purling (wrong side) and 3rd row (right side again) is the 3rd row, and then the second decrease. judithobee on March 01, 2011: Hi, Giselle
Garter stitch is the simplest of knit patterns because every row is knit. the counter will be at the beginning of your stiches and you will have to remember to increase the counter after finishiing that row. After doing this a few times, you will quickly get in the habit. I have found this an invaluable method of counting rows You are right--to increase one stitch every 7 stitches would definitely distort the rib pattern. I cannot imagine what this hat would look like. The only logical way to transition from 56 stitches knit in 2 x 2 rib to 64 stitches knit in 2 x 2 rib would be to knit two rows and do the increases in the second row. The ridge would hide the transition When picking up stitches you will not be picking up 1 stitch in every single row, you need to pick up at the rate indicated instead. Eg. for the smallest size you will be picking up 2 sts for every 3 rows. So you will pick up a stitch in each of the first two rows, then skip the next one. Pick up 2 sts in the next two rows, skip the next one. etc We continue knitting two increases every turn until there are 60 stitches in the needle. 3. Knit the back of the baby romper.

Increasing in Knitting. There are three main methods of increasing stitches, all of which are quite simple to do. The first is to make a stitch (M1) by picking up a loop between two stitches and knitting into the back of it. This forms a neat, invisible increase, so is often used in the middle of a row or where a series of increases are to be worked Figure 1: Work the row and keep the needle with the stitches in your right hand. Place the working yarn round your left index finger. Figure 2: Push the right hand needle under both threads. Figure 3: Pull the needle up, pick up the bottom thread and pull this behind the top thread - see on photo. You now have a new stitch on your right hand. Repeat again for 3 stitches. Turn. Knit your 3 new stitches and complete the row, then turn your work and add on the 3 for your other end using the same method to get your increase 3 sts at each end. Hope that explains it!-- SweaterBabe. If you have a knitting or crochet question for SweaterBabe, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. In round 2 of any crochet circle, there are no stitches in between increases because you increase every stitch. So we pick up with this constant on the third round of any circle. Because this is a constant, you can use this chart to guide where you increase to make a flat circle as you progress from one round to the next Knit 8 rows. At the beginning of the next row decrease one stitch, finish this row. Then knit 3 rows. Decrease one stitch again at the beginning of the 4th. Is this to decrease as a slope, like for a V neck or something? If so you are always decreasing on the same side

It reduces the stitch count by one and the stitches lean to the right K2tog or knit two together: This is one of the simplest decreases. To do this, decrease slide your needle under the second down stitch as if you were going to knit into it and pick up the first stitch as well. Then knit both of them. You're basically treating two stitches like they are one. This is a very tight, right-slanting decrease The one place you can't do it is on the first row. Since this increase uses the knitting of the previous row, you need to have a previous row or it doesn't work. In these cases I'll typically do a KFB if I'm instructed to increase on that first row. I may also work a row plain before starting the increases
. If you have 186 stitches and you need to increase 8 stitches to a total stitch count of 194, you will have to increase at every 23rd stitch (186/8=23.3). However, 23 x 8 + 8 increases = 192 and we need 194 stitches, so in this case you would need to add two extra increases When you knit something that has no shaping such as a blanket or a scarf, you just merrily continue knitting. Each row of the stitch pattern will begin and end as written. But when you knit a sweater, hat, or other project where you must increase or decrease stitches, you'll run into the term keeping to pattern As explained in my article on picking up stitches, you're usually picking up the stitches relative to the stitch-to-row ratio—typically 2 stitches for every 3 rows or 3 stitches for every 4 rows. If you slip the first stitch of the row, you halve the number of available places to stick the needle, making it practically impossible to pick up.

With garter stitch I knit every stitch on every row (easy-peasy!), but the downside is the ends of the rows can look really messy with all those bumps. So to neaten the edges I slip the last stitch on every row, and this tutorial will show you how to do it 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. This will shrink the length of your row by 1 stitch, thus decreasing the width. I suggest using wooden needles when learning how to knit. For more knitting lessons check out this guide
