Increase

To work a yarn over increase at the beginning of a knit row, bring your yarn to the front of your work and knit the first stitch of the row. To knit that first stitch, you move the yarn from the front to the back over the top of the right needle tip while it is inserted into the first stitch. This will create an extra loop of yarn that, on the next row, you can knit normally in pattern.

To work a yarn over increase at the beginning of a purl row, bring your yarn to the back of your work and purl the first stitch of the row. You will bring the yarn from the back to the front over the right needle to purl this first stitch. This will create an extra loop of yarn that, on the next row, you can knit normally in pattern.

Some lace patterns call for a double yarn over increase (yo2). Once you have brought the yarn around the needle for a single yarn over, wrap the yarn around the needle a second time. When you work the next row, work each of the two loops left by the yo2 in pattern. Be careful – it’s easy to miss one of the loops, and then you will be left with too few stitches and a large hole in your work.
