What is Inc in next st, inc in next st, k 1
Hi, I am new to knitting (been knitting less than 2 months) and am having a lot of fun. I am finding patterns very hard to read though. A pattern for a ruffled scarf (no lacey holes) says:

*Inc in next st, inc in next st, k 1; rep from *. 320 sts.
(before this line, you have 192 stitches)

I assume these increases make the ruffle.

I understand I am supposed to increase, and from what I have read in the other threads I think I should use kfb (knit into the front and back). But I don't understand: "Inc in next st, inc in next st".

How can you increase twice (especially using kfb), or does it mean something else? Should I use some other increase (like "make one", and if so should it then be a left-leaning increase?)?

Thanks for any help. Maybe I am biting off more than I can chew but the pattern doesn't seem that hard, I just don't understand the lingo quite yet. Happy knitting, Betania

Correct, "Inc in next st" is KFB. All they are saying is you do two KFB's in a row then knit 1.

This could be read as *KFB, KFB, K1* repeat from *. So across the whole row you increase twice and then knit 1, increase twice, k1. That will make your ruffle.

Thanks so, so much. I really do appreciate it. We'll see how the scarf comes out.

I don't think I'm allowed to share a direct link to the pattern, but it was given out to subscribers to Knitting Daily.

Thanks again, Betania
