Knit Inc Sampler Squares Lesson 4: Yarn Over and Open Make 1

Knit Inc Sampler Squares Lesson 4: Yarn Over and Open Make 1
Unlike the increases we have explored so far, the yarn over and open make 1 increases are neutral increases and don't slant in a particular direction.

Before You Begin

If you would like more information about this project or need help casting on, here's where you can get started with the Knit Inc Sampler Squares series

Materials

Thanks to Ewe Ewe Yarns for providing all of the colorful Wooly Worsted yarn I'm knitting with in this series. Also, thanks to Skacel for providing the DPNs used in this series. They are available locally at many yarn shops and online at Makers' Mercantile.

Printable Lessons and Block Patterns

A printable .PDF version of the Knit Inc Sampler Squares Tutorials and Block Patterns is available for purchase in my shop. Pattern purchases allow me to continue creating instructional resources for knitters worldwide.

Lesson 1

Yarn Over (YO)

Knitting tutorial: How to yarn over (yo)
Bring the yarn forward between the needles. Bring the yarn over the working (right-hand) needle. Notice the yarn is wrapped counter-clockwise around the working needle. The YO is unanchored until the next stitch is formed.


Tip - If a yarn over is preceded by a purl, the yarn is already at the front, so you only need to bring it over the working needle to form the new stitch.

Open Make 1 (OM1) or Open Bar Increase

Knitting Tutorial: How to do an Open Make 1, or open bar increase
Locate the top, horizontal strand that leads into the next stitch on the left needle. Insert the right needle under the strand, from front to back. Knit the lifted strand. Notice that unlike a standard M1, the lifted strand is not twisted and remains open.

Tip - An open make 1 can be used to correct a mistake if you forget a yarn over in the previous row.
