One of the simplest and most often used methods for knitting increases is to knit into both the front and back of a stitch. Work into both the front and back of the next stitch when you are knitting a row. To do this, knit into the stitch, then before sliding it off the left needle, twist the right needle behind the left one, and knit the same stitch again into the back loop.
How do you knit in the front and back increase?
To begin a knit in the front and back increase, also known as a KFB, you simply start a knit stitch, but you do not slip the stitch off the needle that you are using for your left hand.You should have one stitch on the right-hand needle and the previous stitch should still be on the left-hand needle after this last step.To complete the increase, knit onto the back of the previous stitch on the needle you are holding in your left hand.
What is the difference between front side and back side knitting?
The right side of a piece of knitting will often have a preponderance of knit stitches, and the back side will typically have a preponderance of purl stitches. For example, the front side of a garment knitted in a basic herringbone pattern appears like a fantastic collection of knitted Vs that have been arranged in an overlapping sequence of V designs.
What is the best way to knit with one side up?
Knit one side of the object while the other is just left to sit on your needles. Carry on knitting, working row after row in the stitch pattern that you have chosen. This strategy is simple yet efficient.
