Right-Leaning Diagonal Increase Step by Step

Right-Leaning Diagonal Increase Step by Step

This increase is a variation of pulled increases, but with more texture and a more decorative look. It is a great way to add stitches to shawls, structured scarves, top-down hats and sweaters with yoke.

Details like diagonal increases give our projects a feel of high-end designer items without too much effort on our part. In just three simple steps, you will easily decorate your project with these lovely increases, even if you are new to knitting.

Before you ask – I am still working on developing a method that forms a left-leaning increase that will be a mirror version of the increase described in this tutorial.

Because this increase is so textured, developing a matching method might take some time. Once I figure it out, I’ll make a tutorial to share the left-leaning version of this increase with all of you, my friends.
