A kfb is an increase that uses 1 stitch to create 2 sts. A kfb looks like a knit stitch with a little purl stitch off of it. We use this increase in raglan lines of the Flax pullover, an adorable free pattern that is part of The Simple Collection.
How to work kfb (knit front and back):
- Step 1: knit into the next st without taking it off the left hand needle. You now have a loop on both the right and left needle.
- Step 2: knit into the same stitch again through the back loop and take it off the left hand needle.
