  1. Very cute pattern, like the little ruffle!


  2. Can you explain what 'kfb' means? I tried to find it on other websites but this abbrev. doesn't exist.
    Thank you!

  3. 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.
    I highly recommend this site: , they have all the stitches well explained, I learnt from them! ^^
