Yarn forward same as Yarn over?

I’m trying to figure out a lace scarf pattern and for the life of me can’t.

I’ve looked in all my books and online for instructions on yfd and haven’t had any luck yet.

Any tips?


Can you post a little of the pattern where the yfd is?

Sometimes it’s the same as YO, and sometimes not. It kind of depends what else is going on in the row.


It’s for a lacy scarf, it alternates k3 together and yfd’s pretty much every row. I’ll have to post it tomorrow when I get the pattern.

I would say its a YO…an increase to even out those K3tog decreases.

I’ve always found that yfwd and yarn back are the same as yo, but just more specific.
