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!
Meet knitting instructor Aurora Sisneros and learn more about the increases and decreases covered in your class. You can reference any lesson any time to master or review the techniques you need, whether you knit right- or left-handed, English or Continental!
Begin with the basic increases as Aurora demonstrates how to knit into the front and back of a stitch or add yarn overs. You'll see how the stitches look and learn where you might use them. You'll even learn how to knit a bobble, or nupp!
Paired increases are often used in garment shaping, with one increase leaning left and the other, right. Aurora shows how to create new stitches with make ones and lifted increases.
