Why is my knitting getting wider?
If your knitting is getting wider, it means that you are adding extra stitches or changing your tension along the way. More and/or wider stitches create the extra width. To prevent this, ensure that you are not making any new stitches unless the pattern tells you to.
How do you increase when picking up stitches?
A make 1 increase is when you make a new stitch using the yarn extending between 2 stitches. Use your right hand needle to pick up the yarn that extends between 2 stitches and twist this loop with your fingers. Then, slip the loop onto your left-hand needle and knit or purl it as you normally would.
How do you pick up more stitches then there are?
1. Measure along the edge you will be picking up stitches from and using safety pins or locking stitch markers divide the edge into two or more equal sections, placing the markers/pins at even intervals along the piece. Divide the number of stitches you need to pick up by the number of sections you’ve created.
