Lesson 7

Double Lifted Increase

Even though this method is traditionally called a Double Lifted Increase, it is more closely related to the Median Increases from Lesson 3.
Double Lifted Increase: (k1b, kb1, k1b) next st
Knit one into the stitch below the first stitch on the left needle leaving the stitch on the left needle. Knit into the back loop/leg of the stitch on the left needle, dropping the stitch off the left needle. Locate where the first k1b was made and insert the right needle through the stitch from front to back. Knit one into the stitch below again.

Remember - The double lifted increase is created by knitting 1 below, 1 into the back loop/leg, and 1 below the next st. It can be abbreviated (k1b, kb1, k1b) next st.

(k1, yo, k1) next st

Double Increase in knitting: (k1, yo, k1) next st
Knit one, leaving the stitch on the left needle. Bring the yarn forward and over the right needle. Knit one, dropping the stitch off the left needle.

Knit Front, Back, Front (kfbf)

Double Increase in Knitting: Knit Front, Back, Front (kfbf)

(k1, p1, k1) next st

Double Increase in Knitting: (k, p, k) next st
Knit one, leaving the stitch on the left needle. Bring the yarn forward between the needles and purl into the same stitch, leaving the stitch on the left needle. Bring the yarn back between the needles and knit into the same stitch, this time dropping it off the left needle.

Block Patterns

For Blocks 1-12, the diagonals of each square were located at the needle change when sts are arranged on 4 dpns.

For Blocks 13-16, the double increases are made into the center stitch on each needle to create the diagonal. Blocks will not lay flat while knitting.
