How do you turn 90 degrees and pick up stitches?

How do you pick up stitches from left to right?

To pick up stitches, start on the left edge of your piece with the right side facing. Insert the left needle into the middle of the edge stitch, or between the first and second stitch; you can do either, but make sure you are consistent about it!

How do you lift stitches?

Lifted increases

  1. Insert your right needle into the right leg of the stitch in the previous row. That’s the right side of the V below the stitch on your left needle.
  2. Lift that leg up and place it on your left needle tip.
  3. Knit the stitch you lifted, and then continue knitting as usual.
