After mastering the basics, one of the first ‘advanced’ techniques most knitters learn is how to do right- and left-slanting increases. In this video Lucy demonstrates her method for making these increases, as well as explaining how to count your stitches on increase rounds (and how to account for discrepancies).

If you don’t like casting on in the round using two double pointed needles (last week’s video), try this method of casting on using two circular needles! This method of casting on is particularly well suited to hats, since using circular needles make it easy to try the hat on for size.
