Welcome to the forum!
KFB means to "knit front and back".
You'll knit in the front loop, then knit in the back loop before taking the stitch over to the other needle. This makes two stitches out of one.

Here's our video for KFB in the Continental method:

And here's our video for KFB in the English method:

Just wanted to say a quick 'hi' and introduce myself.
I taught myself to knit (incorrectly, apparently) in October of 2008. (I can get the job done, though)
Currently, I am on a mission to knit as many purses-for felting later-to sell at local craft shows this fall. I've come to love knitting, and find that I cannot stand to sit and watch television without needles clicking away in my hands. I hope to never lose the love I have for the craft.
Glad to find this forum, seems very informative and friendly!

Hiya. Finally thought I would register and see what the forums had to say. I have visited this site MANY, MANY times for help when I'm not around my Chicks with Sticks. Currently working on the Oh La Lace Stole which is my first lace project. Just started the Fantasy Naturale baby sweater for something easy when my mind needs a break from the lace. Looking forward to getting to know ya'll better.

Hi! My name is Lauri and I am very new to knitting. I had tried for a couple of years to learn how to knit and it just wouldn't work. Then about 6 weeks ago I just decided to sit down and not get up until I had taught myself how to knit...and it worked! So I basically just knit a rectangle...used the whole ball of yarn. Now I'm working on a dishcloth and should finish that up in the next day or so.

I also love to sew and do all kinds of arts and crafts in general. I'm married and have 3 kids, 2 dogs and 4 cats. And, I'm one of those SAHMs, who never really is home! lol!

Double YO
Hi, I am stuck and hope someone can help. I am knitting a pattern that has in it, (yfwd) twice. I get that part, but am confused about what to do on the next row, which is the wrong side, and it is a purl row. Hope this makes sense and someone can help me, ready to take off the needles and search for a new pattern.


Thanks,
Lee Werk

Welcome! Questions get more attention when placed in the How-to section, but I'll get this one here. What you do with the double yo depends on what it's purpose is in the pattern. If you have a large eyelet in the pattern, the WS row will usually tell you to drop one of the yo's, and you'd purl into the one that's left.

If you have to work both of the yo's, then your best bet is to purl one and knit one on the WS row.
