Step 3: Pull the yarn through both stitches, then slip both stitches off the left-hand needle at once. Sometimes you’ll want to decrease two stitches at once—a double decrease. To do this, just insert the right-hand needle into three stitches at once and either knit or purl them together. These double decreases are abbreviated k3tog and p3tog. INCREASES Knitters have lots of choices for increasing the width of a piece of fabric. Here are the most common methods. YARN-OVER INCREASE This type of increase is used to create lace and openwork in knitting.
Step 6: Repeat steps 4 and 5 several times, grabbing the horizontal bars between the stitches, until you’ve sewn about 2 in/5 cm. Then pull firmly on the sewing yarn, bringing the pieces of knitting together. Continue this way until the seam is complete, then cut the yarn, leaving a 6-in/15-cm tail. The edge stitches of each piece of fabric will roll to the wrong side. See fig. 1. fig. 1 HORIZONTAL MATTRESS STITCH This method of seaming is useful for shoulder seams of garments, or any time you’re joining bound-off or cast-on edges.
It is worth taking the time to obtain the correct gauge at the very beginning. You will ensure that you’ll be happy with your finished project. Besides, any time spent knitting is fun, right? The row gauge is often less crucial than the stitch gauge, because patterns usually tell you to stop knitting or to add shaping once you reach a certain measurement instead of after reaching a particular number of rows. But it is still important to check the row gauge, particularly if you are working a stitch or color pattern that depends on completing a certain number of rows before you move on to the next part of the pattern.
