Front and Back?

I’m knitting a blanket, and after knitting the centre, it says to pick up stitches around the blanket, which I did. The first row says to knit in the front and back of each stitch, effectively doubling the number of stitches.

My problem is, how does one knit into the front and back of a stitch?

Thanks for any help. :slight_smile:


There is a video here. Scroll down and it is in the left column listed as K1 F&B. They are alphabetical. :thumbsup:

Thanks so much. I looked through the other videos/tutorials, but I didn’t find it there. I’m quite sorry for not looking more closely.


donnnnnnnnnnnnn’t worry about it! i think most people miss that spot when they first come visitin’ here. I know i did for months. I found it by accident one day when i was just poking around on the site. I figured i knew the abbreviations (most patterns have the definition listed anyway) so why do i need to go there…lol. that is when i found all the extra videos that i had never seen! :woot:
