Let’s take a look at how to easily increase your stitches with the knitting technique Knit Front and Back, written in most patterns as KFB. Knit Front and Back is an increase stitch, turning one stitch into two. We achieve this by knitting into the front and back of the same stitch.

I hope my close-up video, as well as my slow step-by-step instructions and photos (keep scrolling) are helpful to you in quickly learning to Knit Front and Back.

HOW TO KNIT FRONT AND BACK KFB

Step 1: Begin with a Knit Stitch your regular way into the FRONT.

Step 2: Without taking the yarn off the needle, we will increase one more stitch by bringing the yarn on our needle also around to the back

Step 3: Knit into it.

Step 4: Take it off your needle.

Congratulations! Now, you have two stitches instead of just one, creating an increase in your knitted work.
