Mitten madness!!! kfb
I am trying to make mittens. Here is the pattern. I am confused about the "kfb" stitch, I know how to do the stitch, but it is the increase of stitches that bothers me. the kfb makes two stitches, when I go to the next row do i treat each stitch as its own and P the next row into each of these, I tried to do this and it seems to make my mitten way too big, what am I doing wrong??

Instructions:

With smaller needles, cast on 24 (28, 32) stitches.
Work 8 (10, 12) rows in k1p1 ribbing.
Switch to larger needles and knit 1 row. Purl 1 row.
Repeat these two rows 0 (2, 2) times more.
For thumb-less, infant version, work even in stockinet stitch until piece measures 4-1/4" from beginning; go to "Shape Top."
For S (M, L), continue as follows:
Knit 11 (13, 15); knit in front and back loops (kfb) in each of next 2 stitches, knit to end [26 (30, 34) sts].
Purl 1 row.
Knit 11 (13, 15); kfb; knit 2; kfb; knit to end [28 (32, 36) sts].
Purl 1 row.
Knit 11 (13, 15); kfb; knit 4; kfb; knit to end [30 (34, 38) sts].
Purl 1 row

yes, you treat those as 2 stitches when you purl...what size are you trying to make? Do they specify what S,M,L is? Maybe go down a size if it's looking too big. Good luck!
