How to increase with a yarn over (yo)

In this DROPS video we show how you can increase with yarn over (yo) This is an increase that creates a decorative hole.

We show the increase 2 times in the video. Halfway through the video we have turned the work and show you how to work the yo in front or back loop depending if you prefer a larger or smaller hole. When working the back loop the stitch becomes twisted and this way the hole becomes a bit smaller.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

The video above can be used in the following patterns

Serait-il possible de refaire le vidéo, mais en utilisant la méthode traditionnel et non continental car j ai essayé la méthode continental et rien a faire j\'en suis incapable. Faut dire que ca 36 ans que je tricote avec la méthode traditionnel.

Bonjour Nathalie, quelque soit la méthode utilisée pour tricoter, la technique sera la même: si vous tenez le fil dans la main droite, au moment de faire votre jeté, passez votre fil devant l'ouvrage et tricotez la maille suivante à l'endroit, le fil va automatiquement entourer l'aiguille droite. Au rang suivant, tricotez le jeté normalement à l'envers (= trou) ou dans le brin arrière (= pour éviter un trou). Bon tricot!

är det bara delen där jag lägger tråden runt stickan som räknas som omslag eller "ingår" en rät maska efter jag lagt tråden runt stickan i omslaget? Hoppas att min fråga går att förstå.

Hej! Det är endast den delen där tråden läggs runt stickan som räknas till omslaget/ökningen.

Bonjour, j'ai bien compris comme procéder pour une augmentation avec un jeté sur l'endroit, mais je ne parviens pas à le faire sur l'envers... je ne sais pas comment faire avec le brin de laine. Puis-je trouver sur votre site une explication ? Merci !

Bonjour Rosy, cette vidéo montre comment faire 1 jeté entre des mailles envers. Bon tricot!

I'm working on Baby Drops 13-18 jacket and following pattern M1. It ask me to YO six (6) times between K2 togs. I understand that but when I come back across, I have having problems with the K6 that should happen over those YOs. Is there a different YO I should be using because the usual way just isn't working for me. THanks!

Dear Martha, the video below shows how to work diagram M.1 from B13-18. Happy knitting!

I a working on Silver Dream-U-79. I have done elevation and placed marker for sleeves, centers and etc.; however I am somewhat confused on when to make increases. I understand the yarn over, but unclear on exactly where to do them. How do I get increases on sleeve and body at the same time when I only yarn over before and after stitches (markers). How does that increase the sleeve? Or climate the yarn over between the markers?

Dear Diane, in Silver Dream jumper, inc are done on either side of the K4 for raglan line. But you will dec sometimes only on sleeves (= 4 sts inc) or on sleeves/body (= 8 sts inc) - inc on sleeve are done with a YO after the K4 (raglan line) at the beg of sleeve and before the K4 at the end of sleeve - same on body: inc after the K4 for raglan line at beg of back/front piece and before the K4 at the end of back/front piece. Happy knitting!

¿Cómo se aumenta un punto haciendo una hebra si se teje por el método inglés? Gracias

DROPS Design 21.05.2016 - 18:34:

Hola Blanca. Los aumentos, trabajando por el método inglés, se hacen de la misma manera.

Har en opskrift, hvor jeg netop skal tage således ud ... men jeg forstår simpelthen ikke, hvorfor jeg skal lave hul (større eller mindre) i mit strikketøj, når man kan lave en usynlig udtagning!?!? Hvilke fordele har denne udtagningsteknik, som kan opveje hullet?

Jutta Krause Morsing 16.05.2012 - 18:13:

Desværre vises netop den vigtige sekvens, hvor omslaget dannes, og hvor den strikkes drejet i meget hurtig tempo, så man ikke kan følge med!

Tack vare denna video, som jag fick pausa många gånger för att förstå hur jag skulle sticka de ökade maskorna avigt, så slutade det lyckligt!

Hoi Esther. Wij hebben 4 of 5 verschillende video's over meerderen. Je kunt ook deze bekijken voor tips. Aan het begin van de nld kan je ook gewoon een nieuwe st opzetten. Succes. Tine

Hoe moet je steken meerderen(breien) aan het begin van de naald? Dit om mouwen in een jurkje te breien. Zogenaamd T-jurkje
