Help with pattern abbreviations please
Hi :)

I have on my needles ATM, a scarf pattern that I am altering to make a snood/cowl, however there are a couple of abbreviations that I don't understand.



Please help, this is a birthday present for my neighbours extremely disabled daughter on Tues.

Thank you :)


(Sorry for the lack of a link, I tried but it wouldn't let me, saying I didn't have enough posts. I will try again in a new post)

Hi :)

Yes, I'm disabled also and need a wheelchair full time (I am a high-ish level paraplegic so thankfully not as bad as her daughter). I thought the cowl would be a nice 'girly' thing for her as being so bad can't wear skirts or anything, and I know she likes make-up and nail polish, and the cowl would be easy for her mum to put on her and look pretty but keep her warm also :)
