Knit Into The Front And Back Of Same Stitch

This is the default increase; use it when no specific increase is specified. You will at times see it referred to as a bar increase. Look closely and you'll notice it produces a horizontal bar.

To work this increase, the first step is to knit into the front of the stitch. This is no different than a regular knit stitch. Just don't remove it from the left needle.

Now, place the right needle into the back of the same stitch and knit it again.

Finally, remove the stitch you worked into from the left needle in the normal way.

There are several variations of this and the principle is the same. You knit into the front and purl into the back of a stitch. You may also purl into the front and back of a stitch.
