knit into front AND back of stitch?
I don't understand this pattern. It's for slippers from the stashbusters.
I don't understand how you knit into the front and back of the stitch.

Hi'ya Duessa!

You're in luck! Amy, our "momma"...has a video for the KFB increase.

Just click this link

and scroll down the page til you see the KFB (knit front and back). If you are a Continental (picker) knitter, click the pink camera icon. If you are an English (thrower) knitter, click the blue camera icon.

Or written down:

You knit the stitch as normal, but, you don't slide it off the left needle, but leave it on, and then knit in the back on that stitch, then you slide it off.

I don't really like that. My stitches are quite tight, so with this increase, it gets even tighter...
The ways of Yarn are inscrutable.

I'm NOT a "miss", I'm a lady!
