How to increase to saddle shoulder with yarn over before and after markers

Tags: jackets, jumpers, neck warmers, saddle shoulder, stocking stitch, top down,

In this DROPS video we show how to increase to saddle shoulder by increasing 8 yarn overs before and after markers in a work in one and the same round. This technique is used in the "Country Muse" jumper in DROPS 216-40 and the "Country Muse Cardigan" jacket in DROPS 216-39.

We have already worked a neckline for a jumper and start the video by putting marks in the garment.

In the 1st round we show how we increase by 2 yarn overs before the 1st and 3rd mark and how we increase by 2 yarn overs after the 2nd and 4th mark.

On the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. If it is a jacket, the next row is from WS then work the yarn overs twisted to avoid holes. The number of shoulder-stitches stays the same – the increased stitches become part of the front/back pieces.

The jumper in DROPS 216-40 and the jacket in DROPS 216-39 are worked in DROPS Lima, but in the video we use a thicker yarn; DROPS Snow.
