How to Increase with KLL (Knit through Left Loop)

This method is used anytime a right-leaning increase is required. The increased stitch is created after a knit stitch – or to the left of the stitch, which is a handy way to remember which is which.




After working a knit stitch, identify the stitch 2 rows below the one on your right needle.


Step 1

With your left needle, come from behind to scoop up the left loop of this stitch. This loop on the left needle is the new stitch.


Step 2

Insert the right needle tip through the back loop and knit.
