Actually, if I get this posted tonight I'll feel like I've made a giant step to learning!!!
I am really having some troubles with "YF," "YO" and "YRN" Are they all the same thing .... resulting in an increase???? Once I bring my yarn forward and then attempt the next stitch (in this case a knit stitch) I am having a lot of difficulty. I looked for a long time through the technique videos and didn't find anything to help.[;p
Thanks in advance!!!
YF,YO, YRN are all the same thing. Just different terminology.
Whether executing a YF, YO, YRN there is one thing to remember: First, visualize two existing stitches...and you're supposed to make a YO inbetween them:
a) If you knit
a stitch, YO, then knit
the next stitch...for the YO just flop the yarn to the front of the work and knit that 2nd stitch.
b) If you knit
a stitch, YO, then purl
the next stitch...you kinda have to wrap the yarn round the needle to get the extra stitch out of the YO/YRN maneuver. That is when the term YARN ROUND NEEDLE (YRN) comes into more specific play!
Don't be afraid to tinker with this! It is easy. Just keep an eye on what you accomplished. If there is an extra "leg" or stitch inbetween two existing stitches, you done it right!
