yo and yarn forward are the same thing, just British/American terminology differences.

When you do the yo twice, bring it over the needle, around and then over again and then knit the stitch. On the next row, will you be slipping that extra yarn over off?

When something has a ladder, it usually has an extra wrap on the row before. So wrap your yarn twice for the yfwd each time it calls for it. On the next row, you'll be asked to let it slide off the needle without knitting it.

I made the assumtion that you would slip off the stitch, doesn't seem to be the case.

The first row: Sl1k, then *k2tog, yo twice, sl, k1, psso then repeat from the *

The second row: sl1k, * k2, p1, k1, repeat from *

It looks like you're slipping the first stitch of each row for a selvedge, just a way to make the edge look smooth.


I'm sorry if I messed you up, but my guess about dropping that extra yo was wrong.
