I bought the 2013 Sockupied e-mag yesterday and I've run into an abbreviation that I'm not familiar with. It appears on Page 6 and refers to the simple chevron pattern on the "stitch patters" button. On Rnd 1, the bracketed note gives a [k1,fb] 2 times. What is the fb?? I couldn't find it in any of my "helper" abbrev. either!
I found this on-line.
Answer - It is an increase stitch.You will put your needle into the back of the stitch first, pull up a loop on the right needle, keep the original stitch on the left needle, then you will knit normally a knit stitch using the same stitch on the left needle.
Hope that helps!
I don't have the issue but fb = front and back. So [k1, fb] means knit 1 in front and back. This is an increase method. Does this make sense in your pattern?
