Is there a difference between Yarn Over and Yarn Forward? How do you Yarn Forward?
Nope, they are same thing. There are several different terms for the same YO. Usually it’s a cultural difference I believe.
The top of the page has a glossary where you can see the many different names. Here’s a direct link though.
AWESOME, I was hopping Yarn Over and Yarn Forward were the same thing, just wasn’t sure means the hat I’m working on might go faster! Thank you so much Jan!
Generally they’re the same, if you bring the yarn to the front between 2 knit stitches it makes a yo. Sometimes yfwd is used in a slip stitch pattern where you bring the yarn to the front to slip a stitch, then move it back to knit the next one, but the pattern will say yb too. Doing yfwd then a decrease (sl 1, k1 psso) is making a yo too,
