Thank you Antares
I thought the yrn/yo was the stitch where you create 2 stitches from 1! Hence the confusion!
I've realised how ambitious it is now jan, lol, although I think I'll stick at it until I've finished even if it won't me till Christmas till she has it, lol, I don't have the link for the pattern as I got it from a library book.. It's called Doggy Knits, by Anna Tillman if that's any help... Chose the button up sweater pattern as I thought it would be the easiest! How wrong I was... I'm enjoying it though
