Tags: jackets, jumpers, raglan,

In this DROPS video we show how to increases 3 stitches by knitting around the strand between 2 stitches, between the strand in the round you are working on and around the strand 2 and 3 rounds down. We increases both before and after the markers.

Increase after a marker like this:
Knit 1 around strand between stitch with marker and next stitch (= 1 round down), knit 1 around strand between stitch with marker and next stitch 2 rounds down (make sure to pull the strand long enough not to tighten vertically), knit 1 around strand between stitch with marker and next stitch 3 rounds down (make sure to pull the strand long enough not to tighten vertically). 1 stitch has been worked on each of the last 3 rounds (= 3 stitches increased).

Increase before a marker like this:
Work until stitch with marker, knit 1 around strand before stitch with marker 3 rounds down (make sure to pull the strand long enough not to tighten vertically), knit 1 around strand before stitch with marker and 2 rounds down (make sure not to pull the strand long enough not to tighten vertically), knit 1 around strand before stitch with marker on previous round. 1 stitch has been worked on each of the last 3 rounds (= 3 stitches increased).
