Knit Front and Back Increase Stitch KFB (Knitting Technique)

Learn how to easily increase your stitches with the knitting technique Knit Front and Back, written in most patterns as KFB. This increase stitch creates two stitches from one. We achieve this by knitting into the front and back of the same stitch.

My step-by-step written instructions, along with slow, up close video tutorial, will help you easily learn to Knit Front and Back.
