An Imperceptible Increase
Years ago, I was knitting my very first sweater when the pattern directed me to increase at each side. I'd already discovered that making a yarn-over creates an extra stitch, so I worked a yarn-over every time and kept going. Before long, I was horrified to find that my knitting was edged with alarmingly large holes. Fortunately, my mom came to my rescue, and after ripping out the offending rows, she taught me how to add stitches without adding holes.
For a demonstration on how to "make one," our preferred (and practically invisible) increase stitch, watch our new how-to video, then try out your skills on this week's free pattern, Ipswich, worked in lightweight, drapey Seduce®. This versatile top features subtle waist shaping, offering a perfect chance to practice increasing. If you find the video helpful, be sure to explore our how-to video library to see more.
