  1. Thank you so much for the video on the central double increase. I am knitting a lace shawl and was stumped about this stitch. See ing how its done makes it very clear.

  2. I’m knitting a top down raglan sweater and I do not understand the instructions for the pattern I’m working on. Their instructions for the “raglan double inc” is as follows: inc 1 st, K2, inc 1 st. This is not the same as the “Central double increase” you mention here. When I follow the instructions for the pattern it looks nothing like a raglan increase. What am I doing wrong. Can you explain how to do this. I’ve tried contacting the site that created this pattern, but no reply yet. Thanks.

  3. Pattern reading can be tricky at times. Do you use Ravelry, the internet site for knitters? There are tons of groups and forums where you can have your questions answered. You can even search their pattern data base and see if other knitters have knit the pattern, see their work and also their comments.
    My two favorite knitting books are:
    The Principles of Knitting by June Hemmons Hiatt. This extensive book is my bible of knitting. Well worth the investment.
    The Knitting Answer Book by Margaret Radcliffe. A small book that fits into your knitting bag. It addresses many of the most common questions and has nice illustrations.
    Good luck with your project and happy knitting!

  4. i’m knittung a top down raglan sleve sweater for my husband. my problem is reading the pattern correctly. i like the stitch you show here, so i think i could use it but i can’t figure out the language of the pattern. this is only the second pattern i have attempted, the first being socks, so the instructions are still very odd to me. what source would you addvise i look at to learn the language of knitting?

  5. I did some quick research and could not find a definition for M2. I think that using the Central Double Increase should work just fine. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

  6. is this the same as a M2 increase. I have a pattern that calls for M2 and I can’t figure out what it means.
