In this DROPS video we show how to increase for the yoke for a garment with saddle shoulder by increasing 8 stitches on one 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, increases for saddle shoulders and sleeve and start the video by moving sleeve markers to the stitches where increase for the yoke should be.

Increase like this:
Start before the marker-stitch, use left needle to pick up strand between 2 stitches from the row below, pick up strand from behind and knit stitch in front loop, work marker-stitch in stocking stitch as before, use left needle to pick up strand between 2 stitches from the row below, pick up strand from the front and knit stitch in back loop (= 1 stitch increased on each side of the marker-stitch).

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.
