I was wondering if someone could help me figure this out…
I am doing a children’s sweater (Sirdar book 303, Design C, if that helps). It’s a British book, and I think I am getting a bit confused with their terminology.
The instructions I am having trouble with are:
p1, (k1,p1) 5 times, k1, p2, ybk, s1p, p2, C2B, p2, ybk, s1p, p2 (C2B, C2F) 6times, p2, ybk, s1p, p2, C2F, p2, ybk, s1p, p2, k1, (p1, k1) 5 times, p1.
Their glossary defines s1p as "slip 1 stich purlways) and ybk as “yarn back”.
The way I am reading this, I will lose 4 stitches by the end of this row, and the next row doesn’t make any new ones, meaning that my fabric will keep getting more narrow (and it’s not supposeed to!).
So, I am thinking that “ybk” may really mean “yarn over” to the British, except that this would create an eyelet, and I don’t see any in the photo of this pattern…
