Pulled Increase Step-by-Step

Pulled Increase - Great Way to Increase Stitches in Knitting and Create Beautiful Texture

The technique described in this tutorial is an often overlooked way to increase stitches in knitting. We used this increase as part of the Criss-Cross Bind Off Edging, but it is such a simple and versatile method that it definitely deserves to be featured in a separate tutorial.

What makes this increase so helpful? A few things – it allows us to add new stitches to the work without pulling stitches in the previous row, it does not make a hole, and it can create stitch patterns with amazingly rich texture.

We’ll take a look at those stitch patterns at the end of this tutorial, but first, let’s see how this way to increase stitches works step-by-step.


The full step-by-step photo tutorial about this method, is a part of the Knitting Collection #4. Once you order your copy of this collection, you will instantly receive a “big PDF” (351 pages!) with this and 47 other tutorials included in the collection.

You will also receive one e-book and two knitting patterns as a special bonus, so go ahead and get it all right now before you forget 😊
