If you’re looking for this same ribbon, I ordered some from here.
That said, I ordered this ribbon in March, and it is now the end of May, and I still haven’t received my order. The company said my ribbons are on backorder.

Knit-Front-Back (KFB) Alternative

The KFB increase is an easy increase to work, and my personal favorite. This alternative way of working the stitch leaves you with a smoother fabric, minus the “purl bump”.

I mention the VeryPink Knits audio podcast, which can be found here, or in your favorite podcast app.

A regular KFB is worked this way.

The needles I use in this video are Lykke interchangeables.

The yarn I use is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky.

My nail polish is by Julep, color “Charissa”.
