Question: How do you knit a KFB stitch?

What does KFB mean in knitting instructions?

There are lots of ways to increase the number of stitches on your needle. Knitting in the front and back (or KFB as it’s known in patterns) is a rather easy stitch that will increase the number of stitches in your project. This stitch basically turns one stitch into two.

What does Kbf in knitting mean?

Another variation of the KFB is the KBF, knit back and front. You can probably already guess how to knit it. You knit through the back loop first and then, in a second step, you knit a regular knit stitch into the front loop of the same stitch. Otherwise it’s exactly the same knitting technique.
