Increase Knitting Stitches Knitwise and Purlwise.
Other increase stitches are Yarn Over and Make 3 (knit into front, back and front of the same loop to gain 3 stitches).
Method 1. knit into front of and back of the same stitch.
This method of increasing knitting is not my favorite because it makes a little lump and shows a visible gap at the increasing site.
Here is how to increase a stitch in knitting for both KNIT and PURL.
1.1 Insert right-hand needle into the next stitch knitwise.
1.2 Wrap yarn around the right-hand needle.
1.3 Bring yarn through the loop with right needle. Do not pull the stitch off the left needle yet.
1.4 Insert the right needle into back of the same stitch knitwise.
1.5 Wrap yarn around the right needle.
1.6 Bring wrap yarn through the loop.
1.7 Slip the working stitch off the left needle. And now you gain an extra stitch.
