K1B knitting technique means Knit one Below!  It’s called Knit One Below because rather than knitting this stitch on the needle, we will be knitting into the stitch BELOW it.  The Knit One Below knitting technique is written as K1B in knitting patterns.

The Knit One Below stitch appears in many brioche patterns, which create thick, fluffy dimensional knits.
