Make your knitting wider by adding stitches. You can create an additional stitch on the loom at side edges, or inside the row.
1. Take the previous stitch from the first peg on the back board to the adjacent empty peg.
2. Then take the previous stitch from the front board and move to the adjacent empty peg. You have increased your knitting by one stitch.
To increase the knitting at additional points of the knitted piece, you will move the stitches out to either or both sides, creating empty pins where the increase will occur. Once you have moved all the loops to expose the empty pins, create the new stitch by picking up the previous row stitch from an adjacent stitch and place on the empty pin. Be sure that you have enough empty pins on your knitting board to accommodate the increase of stitches before starting the project.
Note: If desired, you can increase in one row from both ends of the boards, thus increasing the knitting by 2 stitches
