Left-Leaning Pulled Increases Step by Step

Left-Leaning Pulled Increases Step by Step

When I published a tutorial about right-slanting pulled increases a few weeks ago, I received several requests for a tutorial about a method that forms a mirror version of these increases – same look but with a slant to the left.

If this method exists, I wasn’t able to find it, so I tested several approaches and one of them did produce a left-leaning increases that look just like a mirror version of the right-slanting increases we discussed earlier.

Here’s how this method works step by step.

This way to increase stitches is not as fast as the popular “make 1” increase, but the result we get is much more beautiful and is totally worth the effort.

If we pair these increases with the right-leaning pulled increases, we’ll form a lovely line of fanned out increases. This approach works great for shaping raglan lines of top-down sweaters as well as shaping crowns of top-down hats and decorating shawls.
