[FONT="Georgia"]I just joined this site and it's terrific! The videos alone are so helpful. I've founded a small but growing group in San Antonio, TX to knit baby hats for charity. One of the women gave me a gift of a calendar with a knitting pattern for each day of the year.
I found one that I want to knit, but the directions confuse me. It says, "CO 9; Knit 1, yf to last 2 sts, K2; purl every even row. This first row evidently increases by 7. But I don't get how yf (yarn forward according to their glossary) is done. If I bring the yarn forward, how do I knit? It would be a pearl. I thought of knitting the front of the stitch, but that's what happens anyway. If the yarn is in front, what do I grab to knit? If anyone can help, I'd be most grateful and so will the cold babies I'd knit it for. I've made almost 30 hats so far and sent 19 to Philadelphia and the rest to New Jersey- Thanks in advance- Harmony[/FONT]
