Learn all about increasing and decreasing! Join returning Craftsy instructor Aurora Sisneros as she guides you step by step through multiple methods for knitting paired increases and decreases — even when your pattern instructions are difficult to understand. You'll learn each method in your specific style, whether you're left-handed, right-handed, a Continental knitter or an English knitter, and Aurora will teach you when and why to use each. Once you're comfortable with the basics, conquer increases and decreases for embellishments such as cables and lace, so you can confidently knit them in any project. Plus, discover what those vague pattern terms and phrases really mean and kiss the ambiguity goodbye once and for all!
