3. Knit into the same st as in Step #1 and drop it from the left hand needle.
4. Pass the first st over the second and drop the loop.

An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
