Help with Peter Pan Pattern P1033
 
Commence Lace Pattern:
1st row (wrong side) P20, K2, K3, K2, P31, K2, K3, K2, P20
2nd row K20, P2, YON, SL 1, K2TOG, PSSO, YFRN, P2, K31, P2, YON, SL 1, K2TOG, PSSO, YFRN, P2, K20
3rd row Same as 1st
4th row K20, P2, K3, P2, K31, P2, K3, P2, K20

The lace pattern runs up the front of the jumper showing two little "holes" side by side. When I knit I only make 1 hole. What am I doing wrong? I have a piciture of a pattern but would need an e-mail address to send it to if that helps? Please help. Thank you. Stephanie

Theholes are made with YOs which is the 'yfrn' and 'yon' and there's 4 of them on Row 2 - K20, P2, YON, SL 1, K2TOG, PSSO, YFRN, P2, K31, P2, YON, SL 1, K2TOG, PSSO, YFRN, P2, K20 .

So maybe you're not doing them right. The YONs go from a purl to a knit dec, you just lay the yarn over the top of the needle instead of moving it between the needles. The YRFNs go from the knit dec to a purl, so you wrap the yarn as for a regular YO, then bring the yarn through the needle tips to the front for the purl st.

Is this demonstrated anywhere, Sue?

There may be. This glossary from Bernat yarns includes them; yfrn is the same as yrn. YON and YFRN are british/canadian terms for YOs; they describe how to move the yarn while YO is the result.

But I don't know of a video and it can be described. Basically, the YON goes from a purl to knit - instead of moving the yarn to the back between the needles, lay it loosely over the top of the needle from front to back. YFRN, goes from a knit to a purl - make a regular YO (or bring yarn to front, then over the needle to the back) then bring yarn to the front again through the needle tips. You can practice these on a sample, use some leftover yarn and whatever needles you have handy.
