Knitting on the bias is an easy way to add interest to your knitting without much additional work. It makes your fabric (stripes, lace and other stitch patterns) look more complicated than it actually is. In order to make biased fabric, you’ll need to place paired increases and decreases strategically. Decreases and increases in knitting essentially remove or add fabric where there was (or wasn’t) fabric previously. We’ll use this basic idea to see how we can shape our fabric by knitting on the bias. In this first swatch, which does not bias, the increases (yarn overs) and the decreases (knit two stitches together) are placed right next to each other, along the right edge. The result is a square piece of fabric. Finally, in the third swatch, the increases are placed at one edge and the decreases are placed at the other. The result is that the entire piece is now on the bias and the fabric is the shape of a parallelogram. In the second swatch, the increases are placed at the right edge and the decreases are placed in the center. The result is that the fabric on the right between the edge and the center slants to Once you get the hang of bias knitting and how to place paired increases and decreases within the fabric, you’ll be able to create all kinds of new and interesting designs! 82 CreativeKnittingMGracefulAPRIL2019FINDUS@www.facebook.com/ agazine Lace
