Increases & Drcreases


I’m looking for video tutorial for different types of increases and decreases; showing how and when to use each. I’m going to start my first mittens (TinCanKnits-World’s Simplest Mittens). For instance, pattern just states m1 for thumb gusset and I know one should lean left, one right but no instructions for this. And for the decreases, they specify ssk and k2tog. Does one lean a different way than the other?
Thanks in advance for clearing this up for me:))


Check the videos here in Knitting Help to start. There is a sample of what three different increases and decreases look like and description. I’ll see what else just can find.


I’ll check it out Jan. Thank you!


I’m not sure about the increases, but I do know the decreases k2tog leans right / , and ssk leans the opposite . Great to know on the backs and fronts of sweaters too. Good luck on your mittens!


Here’s some more help.




This is great Jan👍 Just what I was looking for!! Thanks so much:)
