Lifted increases are one of my favorites — they stack on top of each other well, they have both left- and right-leaning versions, the purl version isn’t any harder than the knit version, and they look really tidy.
Here are some pics of the four types to help de-mystify this increase. It really shouldn’t be such a mystery.
Do you have a tutorial for Short Rows? The w & t on both the knit and purl sides have me really confused.
We actually have a bunch!
We show you several different ways to make Short Rows. This way, you can decide which one you prefer https://knotions.com/short-rows-all-the-ways/
Hi if I do k2tog and then need to lift the leg of that stitch just worked, would I lift both the legs from the k2tog st and consider it as one? Then continue in the pattern as directed?
in concept, that’s what i would do, but…
why would you need to both decrease and then immediately follow it by an increase? i think that would just create a jumble look. is that what you’re going for?
Is this the same as P1R and P1L? Thanks!
I’m not sure. What does it say for the abbreviation in your pattern that has p1r?
Thank you for this tutorial! I have only recently heard about these increases, and bam, the tutorial is in my inbox! What perfect timing!
It is very clear, but I hope you don’t mind my question. Can you substitute these increases for the standard M1L and M1R in raglan increases?
Cool! I’m glad it worked for you!
You can substitute but you might need to place them differently. I suggest:
Knit to one st bef m, right lifted increase, k, sm, k, left lifted increase.
Ah, that makes sense. Thanks so muich!
I’m a little confused by your LLI photos and descriptions.
Step 2 photo shows LEFT needle lifting second stitch below active stitch on right needle (the one that has just been knit); however directions are written: “Step 2: Insert your right needle from back to front underneath the second stitch below.”
Step 4 photo shows lifted stitch being knit through the back loop; however directions are written: “Step 4: Knit it through the front loop (insert needle from right to left).”
I think the part that’s hitching you up is that Step 2 orients the stitch already twisted. Usually sts are oriented with the right leg in the front, but when you pick up the st it’s already oriented with the left leg in the front. So, you’re not knitting through the back loop.
Does that make sense now?
