Right and Left Lifted Increase

Working an extra stitch into the row or round  below.

Whenever you are knitting and want to widen the shape of your fabric, you need to increase the number of stitches in each row or round. There are a variety of methods to do this, but one I frequently use is the lifted increase.

Lifted increases are made by working an extra stitch into the stitch that's two rows/rounds below the row/round you are knitting. Adding a stitch this way doesn't create a noticeable hole or bump in your fabric.
