The Make one left increase is a left slanting decrease that is nearly invisible. The slant is very subtle but this version make a difference when knitting smaller items, like stuffed toys.

This is what it looks like before we start the increase. You can see the running yarn marked by the arrow. You're going to insert your left needle into it from front to back.

It will look like this after you do this: The arrow is pointing to the loop you just picked up with your left needle.

Now you are going to knit into the back loop of the yarn you just picked up with your left needle.


And you're done. Voila!

Thank you for this.  I can see it could be a very useful technique and your  pictures and explanation are very clear.
