Knit Increase in Front and Back Loops – K Inc
Increase the stitch count in a knit stitch is called Knit Increase. In patterns it’s referred to as K Inc. This is the act of making 1 stitch into 2 before passing the stitch from one needle to other.
In this stitch, you knit as normal but do not slide off the stitch from the needle. Rotate the needle around and go into the same stitch on the back side and knit as normal. Now you have 2 loops on your needle from just one stitch. Now you can slide off.
This is referred to as increasing in both front and back loops.
