Kfb too tight

by Cindy

I am trying to knit a stuffed animal on double pointed needles, using three needles. I can do the first round of knit. However, the second row calls for kfb to double the stitches on all the needles. When I do this the stitches get so tight I can’t continue. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Cindy,

Maybe you could try lifted increase instead. Let's me see if I can find a video for this.

Here is one video I found;

Try using the same increase throughout the row. (left of right)

Hope this helps. Enjoy your evening!
