Confused!!

Can someone please explain the following sentence from my knitting pattern…

Thumb increase: knit 18 stitches, in the next stitch knit in front and back of next st( increase), knit 2, knit in front and back of next st, knit 18 stitches.

Thank you in advance xx

Maybe the Inner Child mittens from Hip to Knit?

These are directions for the thumb gusset. Knit 18sts, knit into the front and back of the next stitch (kfb), knit 2, knit into the front and back of the next stitch, knit 18.
You’re making room for the thumb as it branches off from the hand. Here’s a video for kfb if you need it.

Thank you I’ll give it a try x

Mittens and gloves are fun. Try this video to understand what you’re doing. She talks about different thumb styles, you might it interesting. The whole series of videos is how I learned to do mittens.
