Stitchopedia Video & Photo Tutorial

Do you want to know how to KFB (Knit Front and Back)? Well, here you will find written, photo, and video tutorials that will teach you this increase. KFB is an easy increase that does not create a hole. It gives the look of a knit stitch followed by a purl stitch on the front, and a purl followed by a knit on the back. Working this stitch backwards (knit back and front) does not create the opposite look; trust me, I’ve tried.

Now pull the yo through the stitch. This is essentially a knit stitch up to the point where it’s pulled off the needle. Do NOT pull stitch off needle.
