How to knit in stitch below and how to increase 4 stitches in 1 stitch

In this DROPS video we show how to knit 1 stitch below next stitch and how to increase 4 stitches in 1 stitch. These charts are taken from DROPS 201-40, but the same technique is used in many other patterns.

We start the video by showing how we work chart A.1 and then especially how we knit 1 stitch below next stitch and name it an English rib stitch. We show 1st round of A.1 4 times. On 2nd round of diagram purl all sts.

When we work A.2 we show how to knit 5 stitches in the English rib stitch as follows: Knit 1, but wait to slip the stitch off the needle, * make 1 yarn over on right needle, knit same stitch without slipping the stitch off left needle *, work from *-* 2 times in total, then drop this stitch off left needle = 5 stitches (i.e. 4 stitches increased).

Then we show how chart A.3 is worked.

We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video. This yarn is quite thick, but if you knit with a thinner yarn the increase in the English rib stitch will be better.

You must read the pattern/chart explanation and look at the charts to be able to follow this video properly. You’ll find a pattern with this technique by clicking on one of the pictures below.
