How to Increase in Crochet

In a fabric made of solid, basic stitches, such as double crochet (see below) or treble (see next below), increases are made simply by working 2 or more stitches into one stitch at either or both ends of a row.

Note that this method of working several stitches into the same stitch is also used to create many different effects and instructions are always given in crochet patterns.
