i’m knitting a bikini (woot) and on some of the directions for the bikini bottom it uses Inc1bel and Inc1aft, and i can’t make sense of the instructions:
Inc1bel: increase one stitch in next row below. insert tip of right needle in top of next stitch in row below. knit this stitch. knit next stitch on left needle.
Inc1aft: increase one stitch in second row below. Knit next stitch, insert tip of left needle into stitch on right needle second row below, knit this stitch.
does anyone have any idea how to do these? or… any advice on where i could go on this site for knitting videos that would teach me how to do these? thanks!
also, the pattern advises that i use yarn that is gauge of 7 sts and 10rows/inch with 3.75mm (size 5) needles in stocking stitch. i’m not currently located in the us, and i’m not exactly sure how thick the yarn should be… any advice?
