Start with a look at the yarn over knitting increase, the simplest increase method which is often reserved for openwork patterns. Next, we'll check out the bar increase, which unlike the knitting yarn over method, does not produce a hole. Move on to the raised increase, also known as make one increase, which creates an invisible increase because it's worked in to the horizontal strand between stitches. Finally, we'll check out the lifted increase, which is yet another handy invisible increase technique.

For decreases we begin with the k2tog and ssk knitting decreases which are mirror images of each other (which is why they are commonly used in tandem). P2tog and ssp knitting decreases and essentially the same as the first two, just done the purl side instead of the knit side. Next, see how knitting skp decreases will create a fairly pronounced left-slanting decrease, great for using in lace patterns, before finishing it all up with the spp decrease (slip purl pass). With so many options to choose from, you are sure to find the right increase or decrease to fit your needs. Get them all today with this free eBook download.
