Help

Recommended Posts

Hi. Can anybody help me. I'm very new to knitting and I'm struggling to get my head round the following instructions.

k1 (kfb) four times in next st. nine sts.

I know what kfb means but I just don't understand it in this sentence!

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

 

As you know kfb means knit into front and back of stitch giving you an extra stitch.

 

What you have written sounds like you have 2 sts and in 1st stitch you k1 then   KFB 4 times in next st giving you a total of 9 sts.

 

Try it and see if it works. 

 

Please let me know

Thank you very much. You made it sound so much easier than the pattern itself did. I managed it first time with your help. I feel I will probably be calling on you again some time. I'm okay at knitting but not so good with reading patterns.

 

Thanks once again.
