Increase Multiple Stitches

The following are a few of the techniques you can use to increase 2 stitches. DOUBLE BAR INCREASE

This increase is called a double bar increase because you use the bar increase method twice in one row to shape symmetrically. It is usually done over an odd number of stitches, on the front side of a piece of knitting, and in the center of the row of knitting. For a refresher on bar increases, see page 246.

1 Knit across to the stitch before the center stitch (known as the axis stitch) and then work a bar increase.

2 Work a second bar increase into the axis stitch. Knit to the end of the row.

Even though the second increase is worked on the axis stitch, the bar appears after it.
