1) Insert the right needle into the first stitch.
2) Make a knit stitch but do not drop off the left stitch just yet.
3) Bring the needle over to the back and insert it at the back of the stitch.
4) Wrap yarn around the tip of the right needle anti-clockwise.
5) With the tip of the right needle draw a loop by going into and out of the left stitch. You should now have two stitches on your right needle.
6) Slide the left stitch off your left needle.


And that’s how you increase a stitch by knitting into the front and back of the same stitch!
