Knitting Tutorial: Median or K1 Below Increases

Knitting Tutorial: Right and Left Slanting Median or K1 Below Increases - A decorative way to increase stitches in your knitting.
Median, or K1 below increases aren't the most widely used way to increase stitches in your knitting, maybe because there is a more noticeable hole than with other increases, but I think they're pretty.

Before You Begin

To work a median increase that slants to the left, k1 below the next stitch, k next stitch.

For a right slanting median increase, k1 but do not drop the stitch from the left needle, k1 below the stitch on the left needle, drop the stitch off the left needle.
