Every stitch has 2 legs or loops - one on the front of the needle and one on the back. Go to the increases section and look for the video for kfb. Purl front and back is the same only purlwise.

The front is the side facing you, the back is the side facing away from you.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
