Increasing Knit Stitches and avoiding holes HELP
I was taught to increase a stitch by just carrying the yarn over and then doing a knit stitch. This way always leaves a hole. If there is another way.. could somebody please help me?
Email me at danimaxam@hotmail.com
Thanks

Check out Amy's section on increases. She gives a whole bunch of options.

I'm so confused about increasing...more even more now. I looked at Amy's ideas, but which one is the easiest???? Most common?

thanks

Either version of M1 is pretty common and simple.

Knitting into the front and back of a stitch is easiest, but the M1 increase is the most invisible.
