“Increases add stitches to our work and decreases take them away. They enable us to knit beyond rectangles, and to fashion sweaters and socks, hats and hedgehogs. Their appearance may contribute much toward a stitch pattern’s distinctive look. Double increases are the means to creating three stitches where only one existed before.”
