Tags: jackets, raglan,

In this DROPS video we show how to knit in the stitch below and how to increase 4 or 2 stitches.

First we show how to increase 4 stitches as follows:
Knit 1 in stitch below stitch with marker, do not slip stitches off the needle, make 1 yarn over on right needle, knit 1 in same stitch, but wait to slip off the needle, make 1 yarn over on right needle and knit 1 in same stitch, then slip the stitch off the left needle (= 4 stitches increased). Insert 1 marker in the middle of these 5 stitches (for next increase). Then we show how to purl next row.

Then we show how to increase 2 stitches as follows:
Knit 1 in stitch below stitch with marker, do not slip stitches off the needle, make 1 yarn over on right needle, knit 1 in same stitch, then slip the stitch off the left needle (= 2 stitches increased). Insert 1 marker in the middle of these 3 stitches. Then we show how to purl next row.
