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.

  1. Michelle I learned to knit a few years ago and then I was not able to pick up any needles for a couple of years and I went to knit this morning and I could not remember how to even use my needles – ugh! I could hardly believe it and then I thought of you and your fabulous videos and yes I am up and going once again! Your videos are so clear and so well done – thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!

  2. Because of your extremely helpful videos I was able to complete a baby blanket using intarsia that I had given up on 5 years ago before I knew you-tube knitting videos were available. I can’t wait to try another challenging project because your very slow methodical way of explaining things just clicks with me! I CANT THANK YOU ENOUGH! I am the Master of my knitting because of you!

  3. Just to say thank you very much for posting all your knitting videos. I am a beginer in knitting (I can cast on and off, and do Knit and Purl other than that I didn’t have a clue!), and I’ve looked at lots of your videos today. They are extrenley easy to follow and have given me the confidence to purchase a few patterns to make an acron and mushroom (so far!!). Well done and thanks again.

  4. thank you for your GREAT videos! I have been kitting for at least 50+ years but did not know how to M1L or M1R. it is in a pattern I am currently working on. …so thanks to your terrific video I learned how to do both and am almost finished with the adorable sweater!!!
