Very cute yes, thanks for the pattern!ReplyDelete
Can you explain what 'kfb' means? I tried to find it on other websites but this abbrev. doesn't exist.ReplyDelete
Michelle, it means: "knit front and back", you first knit through the front loop and then without removing the stitch from the left needle you knit through the back loop - in this way you increase the number of stitches.ReplyDelete
I highly recommend this site: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/abbreviations_explained/ , they have all the stitches well explained, I learnt from them! ^^
