What is knit front back?
Knit front back (kfb) is a method of increasing stitches in knitting that allows you to create a new stitch anywhere in your row or round.
The new stitch is created by knitting into the same stitch twice: first in the front, and then in the back.
I use this method in most of my patterns – I have referred to this method as Inc1 in the past. However, there are different methods of increase so in the case of my patterns, Inc1 = kfb :)
