Working into the Front Loop
Standard abbreviation: FL
FLO - Front loop only
tfl - Through front loop
A method that can be used with any type of stitch. Instead of working under both bars of the stitch of the row below as usual, the stitches are worked into the front bar only, leaving the back bar unworked.
This creates a less stable, more flexible fabric and when working in rows differs from working in the back loop by leaving a neater, small bar (the unworked stitches) to the back of the work.
