Hey everyone,
as i recently rediscovered knitting for me, I've come across some new methods, I haven't worked with so far.
Namely, k1tbl (knit one through back loop) and k1b (knit one below).
I wonder, what are the effects of those stitches in comparison to a normal knit stitch?
Regarding the k1b, I found out through google, that it makes the stitch thicker and softer. Is that correct?
But, what about the k1tbl? Does anyone know? Please help!

Hi, ktbl twists the stitch, it's sometimes done in ribbing to make the rib tighter and/or to make it pop out. It can be used alongside drop st columns to stablize the sts on either side of the dropped ones so they don't get elongated or messy. K1below is used in Fisherman's rib patterns and it gives a thicker, cushier rib. It can be used in honeycomb or waffle stitch too.
