Tags: circular needle, english rib, sweaters,

In this DROPS video, we show how to increase after Increasing Tip-2 to the sleeve caps of the "Cloud Fluff" sweater in DROPS 212-14. We have a smaller number of stitches than what the patterns says. We show Increase tip-2 with the 1st and 2nd increases for the sleeve caps, how we move the markers and how to work the next round (we do not show how the front and back pieces are worked). INCREASE TIP-2, INCREASE 1 ON SLEEVE CAP IS WORKED AS FOLLOWS: Work 3 stitches in the stitch and yarn-over and move the marker as follows: Purl together the yarn-over and stitch, insert 1 marker in this stitch (i.e. stitch on right needle), but do not slip the stitch and yarn over off the left needle, make 1 yarn over the right needle and purl together the stitch and yarn-over 1 more time = 3 stitches (= 2 stitches increased). The marker sits in the first increased stitch (= purled stitch). The next increase is worked in the stitch with the marker. INCREASE TIP-2, INCREASE 2 ON SLEEVE CAP WORKED AS FOLLOWS: Work 3 stitches in the stitch and yarn over and move the marker as follows: Purl together the yarn over and stitch, but wait with slipping the stitch and yarn over off the left needle, make 1 yarn over the right needle, purl together the stitch and yarn-over 1 more time and insert the marker in this stitch = 3 stitches (= 2 stitches increased). The marker sits in the last increased stitch (= purled stitch). The next increase is worked in the stitch with the marker. On the next round work the 3 stitches as follows: Make 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl, knit the yarn over, make 1 yarn over, slip 1 stitch as if to purl.
