yfrn????
I'm getting ready to branch out and try something a little, or a lot, more difficult.
I want to make the lacey cardigan in the Ella Rae Book 119 "Pansies" page 26.
In looking at the pattern repeat section row one reads as follows:
K1, yfrn, p2tog, K1 *p1, K2, yf, sl1, K1, psso, K1, p1, K1, yfrn, p2tog, K1, rep from * yo end.
I get all of it but the yfrn. The key in the back of the book has yfon which is yarn forward over needle, and yrn which is yarn around needle, but no yfrn. So which one do I do or is it really a combination of both?
The swatch for obtaining gauge is also done in the pattern which is a little different than I'm used to seeing.

Yes, kind of a combination of both.
It's good that the swatch is in this pattern because it'll give you a chance to try it out. Yfrn is yarn forward around needle. It occurs between a knit stitch and a purl or p2tog. Do the knit stitch and then bring the yarn forward betwen the needles, over the right needle and around and to the front again so that you're have the yarn in place to purl.

I'm thinking I'll practice the pattern on some scrap yarn before I do the swatch in the yarn I'm going to use. I want to make the sweater a little longer than the pattern shows so will need all the yarn I can save.
I have a feeling I'll be doing a lot of frogging before I get it right.

Often, the first time through the pattern gives the most problems. Once you can see how the rows stack up it makes more sense and you start to see where sts should go instead of having to follow the written instructions all the time. Establishing the pattern over the first row can also cause trouble so if markers will help with the repeats, use them. A lifeline is a good idea with lace, too.
Enjoy knitting your lacy cardigan!
