I'm new to knitting... and it says that it'll look like the stocknette stitch. But... I don't really understand... yb(yarn back) and yf(yarn front)? does that mean that I knit? I would really appreciate your help ^_^;



With size 6 circular needles and color A, cast on 48 sts.
1st row: Using A* (yb, k1, yf, sl 1) 4 times, (yb, sl 1, yf, p1) 4 times, rep from * to end. Return to beg of row without turning work.
2nd row: Using B *(yb, sl 1, yf, p1) 4 times, (yb, k1, yf, sl 1) 4 times, rep from * to end. Turn work.
Rep last 2 rows 3 times more, twisting yarn at sides to close.

Hi and welcome to KH!

I removed part of your post 'cause due to copyright laws KH can't have full patterns posted. You can post a section you are having trouble with and the link to the pattern though :thumbsup:

For this section (yb, k1, yf, sl 1) 4times

yb means yarn in back so when you do the K1 you are right your yarn is already in the back. yf means yarn forward so they want you to move your yarn forward before you slip the next st. They want you to repeat this 4times.

(yb, sl 1, yf, p1) 4 times

Here they want you to move the yarn to the back when you slip the sts and then move the yarn to the front for the purl (which is how you work a purl st)

:thumbsup: Mostly they are telling you how they want the yarn when you slip the stitches
