I am tryiny to teach my self to knit. I am doing this pattern for a baby blanket and the pattern calls for a yfwd. I know what this means but I don't understand how to make the stitch. Can somebody help me out?
Yfwd isn't technically a stitch. It means yarn forward, and you just have to bring your yarn to the front of your work as you would to purl. Then you do whatever the next stitch is. If the next stitch is a knit stitch, you'll have a yarn over increase--one more stitch on your needle and an eyelet.
