In Simply Knitting issue 95 (July) you’ll find Alan Dart’s adorable Owl and The Pussycat design. Use our easy-to-follow step-by-step guide to increase 1 by knitting into front and back – a key technique in this pattern.
Step-by-step Increase 1 by knitting into front and back
1. Insert the tip of the right-hand needle into the front of the stitch and knit as normal, but don’t drop it from the left-hand needle.
2. Then take the right-hand needle behind the left and insert the tip of the needle down through the back of the stitch on the left-hand needle.
3. Wrap the yarn round the tip of the right-hand needle to knit the stitch. Bring the needle through to make the stitch, keeping it on the right-hand needle.
4. Take the stitch off the left-hand needle. You will have increased one stitch by knitting twice into the original stitch, first at the front, then at the back.
