Technique Tuesday

Technique Tuesday: A clever little increase today that works a raised increase into the same stitch (shown on the pink needle in the pic), so:

- work up to the stitch where the increase is to happen (Pink Needle stitch) 
- M1R (make 1 right - see below)
- knit the Pink Needle stitch 
- M1L (make 1 left - see below)

M1R: Insert tip of RH needle from back to front to lift right leg of st 1 row below first st on LH needle and place lifted loop onto LH needle, knit into lifted loop

M1L: Insert tip of LH needle from back to front to lift left leg of st 2 rows below first st on RH needle, knit lifted loop through back of loop
