Invisible increases when knitting Stockinette stitch

In today’s tutorial, I’m sharing an increase technique that I just discovered, easy to do and practically undetectable, ideal for knitted pieces made in Stockinette (Stocking) stitch (sometimes the increases can be decorative, but often we would prefer them to be invisible (like my boyfriend 😉 

In a previous tutorial, we practiced my favorite increase when knitting Garter stitch, so this time, we’ll see how to do increases that are smooth, virtually unnoticeable, and can be used for any kind of stitch where you get the “v” (the little chain) typical of the Stockinette, because we need one of the sides of the stitch (I call them the “legs” of the v).

Easy increase knitting technique, and practically invisible. So Woolly.

This sample was made using smaller needles and a finer yarn:
