How to work 4 different chart icons

In this DROPS video we show how to work 4 different chart icons. We mark the icons pink before knitting/purling. We work 2 stitches in each side in garter stitch. In some patterns, there may be other charts and similar chart icons, but the technique is almost the same.

Chart icon 1: Knit 3 together (= 2 stitches decreased).

Chart icon 2: Between 2 stitches make 2 yarn overs; on the next row (wrong side) purl the first yarn over twisted (i.e. the yarn over towards the middle of the diagram); the second yarn over is purled (i.e. the yarn over towards the side) (= 2 stitches increased).

Chart icon 3: between 2 stitches make 2 yarn overs; on the next row (wrong side) purl the first yarn over (i.e. the yarn over towards the side), the second yarn over is purled twisted (i.e. yarn over towards the middle of the diagram) (= 2 stitches increased).

Chart icon 4: Slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together and pass the slipped stitch over (= 2 stitches decreased).

We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video.

You must read the pattern with these chart icons to be able to follow this video properly. You’ll find patterns using these techniques by clicking on one of the picture below.
