abbreviations TF and TB?
Hi--
I am working on a hat using a pattern from the 1970s, and I've come across some abbreviations I don't understand. Can anyone explain how to "TF 2" or "TB 2"?
Thanks!

Maybe it's a variation of "tbl" (through the back loop) and "tfl" (through the front loop)?? So I'm thinking "TF 2" means "through the front loop twice.

Are you sure you have the whole pattern? Patterns usually have a abbreviation key. :thinking:

Thanks for the reply. I do have the complete pattern--it's in a booklet from Bernat, which includes descriptions of every abbreviation except these--go figure. The TFs and TBs occur around some cables--I'm new to cabling, so maybe it's something obvious I just don't know about . . .

Oh ... :thinking: Maybe it means "Twist Front" and "Twist Back"? The videos for cables are here. I know that putting the cn in the front of the work VS the back of the work will make your cable twist backward or forward, but I can't remember which is which. But I think Amy's notes which is which in the video.

My first thought was Twist Front and Twist Back.

A co-worker found a great source of abbreviations at www.knittingfool.com. It gives a good description of both "twist front" and "twist back".

Thanks for your replies.
