kfb (Knit Increase)

Many patterns call for the use of a kfb (knit front and back). This abbreviation is used for a knitting increase made by knitting into the front and back of a stitch. It is an easy and quick increase that turns one stitch into two. The resulting new stitch leaves a bump similar to a purl bump. Try your hand at this elementary increase demonstrated in my newest video.
