im so confused by what this pattern is telling me…see this thread i posted on rav this morning…got a reply but…still dont get it…help
I’m not sure if your confusion involves the yfwd. You might findYarn Over 101 useful.
it does - involve the yfwd not the video lol
Maybe if we could see a few lines of the pattern it would help. I’m wondering, do you know this for knitting holes? That’s an eyelet pattern. You probably already know that.
I think of that video as, everything I never knew I wanted to know about yarnovers in British and American knitting and might not have asked if I did.
It’s better to repost a question here than to make everyone go some where else to read it. Or just come here in the first place.
There are multiple names for the same thing (YO, YFWD, YF…) and most mean YO depending on what the next stitch is. We have a glossary at the top of the page. Here’s one from KP that has it in a little more detail.
It sounds to me like you bring the yarn forward to start then k2tog, and then YO, K2tog to the end of the row or round. I don’t know why it’s written that way. It may be a British pattern or an old one.
