How to increase right/left of markers on a crochet round yoke

When working a round yoke top down you can increase by using markers on the row and work the increases alternatively on the right and the left of each marker. In this DROPS video we show you how to do this. Here we crochet back and forth, but the techique is the same if you work in the round.

In this video we placed 6 markers on the row and in the first row we increase by working 2 tr in 1 tr on the RIGHT side of each marker (or BEFORE the marker) and in the second row we increase by working 2 tr in 1 tr on the LEFT side of each marker (or AFTER the marker).

As this is a standard technique, you must read the pattern to be able to follow this video properly. You’ll find patterns using this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

Hallo, bestaat er een basismodel voor ronde pas met aanduiding van het aantal meerderingen (hoeveel en om de hoeveel rijen) zonder siersteek ? Bedankt

Hallo Ingrid, De meesten zijn inderdaad met een siersteek, maar misschien is dit patroon geschikt. Je kunt hem dan in 1 kleur haken.

I am not sure why when I do this, the right side is getting more and more stitches and the left side is remaining the same - for example I started with markers after 13 chains on the left and right, after few rounds, my left side is still 13 chains before the increase, the right is 15 chains.. could you show at least 4 rows how it looks like for this increase?

Dear Mrs Ling, you are increasing as shown in the video ie repeat the 2 rows with inc, these are not raglan dec, but only for circular yoke, so that the markers do not delimitate pieces in work, only where to inc. Happy crocheting!
