Here is the pattern for Ugg baby booties. I am new to "yf" and I am not sure if I am doing this right but everytime I yarn forward I end up with less stitches in the end.

With smaller needles and Wild Bill cast on 26 stitches and knit 1 row. Row 1: k1, yf, k11, [yf, k1] twice, yf, k11, yf, k1.
Row 2, 4, 6, 8, 10: knit (when you reach the yf knit in the back of the stitch).
Row 3: k2, yf, k11, yf, k2, yf, k3, yf, k11, yf, k2.Row 5: k3, yf, k11, [yf, k4] twice, yf, k11, yf, k3.
Row 7: k4, yf, k11, yf, k5, yf, k6, yf, k11, yf, k4Row 9: k5, yf, k11, [yf, k7] twice, yf, k11, yf, k5.

When I start row one, the last k11, f, k1 I end up with 8 stitches so cannot k11.

I went to www.keyboardbiologist.net/Techniques/YarnForwardKnit.htm to learn how to yarn forward and I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

One last question: instead of yf can I yo?

As best as I can tell, you are somehow using stitches when you do your yf. The yf if just an increase, and should not be taking any stitches off your left needle. After row 1, you should have 31 stitches on your needle.

Actually I am using stitches based on the knitting help from link above. That is how they said you do a yarn forward. Can someone help me on how to do a yarn forward?

Hiya hun,
A yarn forward is the same thing as a Yarn over.
yf = yo

In the link it sorta makes it look like you knit the next st and that's part of the yarn forward. So you're probably bringing the yarn to the front, knitting the next st, then knitting 11. That would make you 3 sts short when you get to the last set. Just bring the yarn to the front and knit however many sts it says.

Thank you so much for your help!!!! That was frustrating for a while doing the first row over and over. And yes I was knitting into the next stitch for a yarn forward. Now that I know a yarn forward is the same as a yarn over I will follow the video instructions on this website for a yarn over.

Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
