Double Make One Increase

This increase is similar to the double bar increase in that you increase 1 stitch on either side of an axis stitch, but it is less visible. It is also best worked on the front side of a piece of knitting, over an odd number of stitches. For a refresher on make one increases, see the preceding page.

1 Knit across to the axis stitch. Perform a right-slanting make one increase, using the horizontal strand between the last stitch worked and the axis stitch.

2 Knit the axis stitch.

3 Perform a left-slanting make one increase, using the horizontal strand between the axis stitch and the next stitch to be worked on the left needle. Knit to the end of the row.
