"knit into front and back of next stitch"
Hello everyone, new knitter here

I'm looking at these patterns
http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/...html?noImages=
http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/scarfzig.htm

and both include knit into front and back of first stitch

What does this mean?

Also, in the first pattern, how does 1 stitch become 7 stitches by row 6?

With larger needles, cast on 1 st.
Rows 1-6 Knit into front and back of first st, knit to end of row 7 sts at end of row 6.


Sorry for the beginner questions. Thank you.

Knit into the front and back or K1 F&B or KFB, or bar increase is here...

http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...ar-english.mpg

It is an increase that turns one stitch into two, so each row you are increasing the amount of stitches in that row. You knit like usual into the front leg of the stitch, then WITHOUT SLIDING THE STITCH OFF THE LEFT NEEDLE YET, then knit into the back leg of that same stitch, THEN slide it off the left needle. It might take a bit of finagling and might be a bit tight to get that stitch done into the back leg, but it CAN be done.

Row 1 -- 1 + 1 = 2 when you are done with the row
Row 2 -- 2 + 1 = 3 ...
Row 3 -- 3 + 1 = 4 ...
Row 4 -- 4 + 1 = 5 ...
Row 5 -- 5 + 1 = 6 ...
Row 6 -- 6 + 1 = 7 ... when you have completed row 6
