Knitting an apple.
A few days ago i was looking around , and found these awesome patterns for knitting fruits, I really wanted to knit a apple, so i checked out the pattern, and i was completely clueless.

I don't really know everything of knitting yet. Just the basics.
But anyway this is how the pattern is shown (a part of it):

CO 6
kfb around - 12
k1, kfb around- 18
k2, kfb around - 24
k3, kfb around - 30
k4, kfb around - 36

Okay all i know is :
CO, Kfb and k

Im confussed about the "around" I dont get it at all.

Oh and does k1,k2, on mean knit 1, knit 2 knit on??

Thank you so much. Gladly appreciate the help.

Oh also heres the site for the pattern
All i can say is,
I love knitting,....Until i mess up

Okay, you cast on 6 stitches and then knit in the front and back of each stitch on the first round.
By the way the use of the work round indicates that you should probably be doing this in the round, as in using 4 double pointed needles or some other method of working a small circumference in the round.

After that first round you knit a round where all you do is knit all the way around.

Then you knit a round of K1 and then knit in the front and the back of the next stitch and alternate those 2 directions all the way around. You then do a round of just knit.

You keep increasing every other round adding one more knit stitch between the increases. The number at the end of the line tells you how many stitches you will have at the end of that round.

If you haven't done circular knitting like this go to this page for a free video of how to do it. Scroll down to "Small Diameter Circular Knitting". It is not all that hard, you still just work on two needles at a time, and you never have to purl. :-)

1--the apple is knit in the round.

2 there are 6 increases every other round

3--the increase used is the Knit in front and back of stitch

4--last years interweave knits Holiday issue had a pattern for a knit apple--(Nicky Epstein's) which is knit flat. (see if you can find a copy of that.. (if you aren't confident about knitting in the round)

I have patterns for a mini apple --(its free) if you want--my apple is also knit in round, with sock yarn (but i suspect you could knit it bigger (using larger needles and yarn)

you could also google knit apples and find other patterns.. (i suspect)
