    When you need to add a stitch to the row you are working on, they sometimes will “knit in bar”. Between stitches, there is a piece of yarn that runs across from one stitch to the next. After knitting a stitch, you can clearly see it right before the next stitch. You would pick up that “bar” and put it on your left needle. Then you knit it. There are two ways to do it, depending on the effect you want to achieve. For a good video on this technique, see this:

    The only thing I can think of is that you would pick up the bar between the stitches onto your left hand needle and then knit that. It creates an extra stitch.

    kfb = knit in front and back c6f = place first 3 stitches of cable on a double pointed needle and hold them in front of the work. Knit next three stitches as normal, then knit the three stitches off double pointed needle c6b = same as C6F, but hold the three stitches behind the work instead m1 = make 1 t3f = twist 3 front t3b = twist 3 back c4b = Slip next 2 sts onto a cable needle and hold at back of work, knit next 2 sts from left-hand needle, then knit sts from cable needle spp = slip slip purl skp = skip (slip one, knit one, pass the slipped stitch over
