Increase Stitch on the Knifty Knitter LoomIncrease stitches are used to add width, or flare to any knit project.
- Begin the project as close to the center of the loom as possible. This leaves room on both sides of the row to increase width equally.
- When the end of the row is reached, rather than turning and knitting off back across the row, use the yarn to wrap an additional peg.
- Continue wrapping until the row has been increased by the number of stitches desired.
- Continue knitting off back across the row.
Decrease Stitch on the Knifty Knitter LoomDecrease stitches may be used to taper a waste line of a sweater, or narrow the wrist of a knitted arm.
- When arriving at the row that is to be decreased, take the loop on the last peg of the row and unhook it. Place it on the previous peg in the row.Adding it to the previous peg, rather than simply dropping the stitch, prevents the finished knit from unraveling.
- Repeat the step above until all the stitches that need decreased in the row have been removed.
- When knitting off, knit off all the additional loops that have been placed on the end peg of the row, as one loop.
