I am just starting a new project which is mostly in purl. The pattern calls for yf (yarn forward). I understand the yf before I do a knit stitch but then it calls for yf between purl stitches. How do I do a yf? The yarn already is in the front. I had to cast on 45 stitches and then after I do the first two rows of all purl I end up with 42 stitches. I must be doing something wrong with the yf. The pattern is:
p1 p2tog p5 yf (k1 yf p5 p3tog p5 yf) twice k1 yf p5 p2tog p1. PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU CAN!
