Yfwd means to bring the yarn to the front of your work between the needles. In it self, it is not a stitch, but more of where the yarn is before you knit the next stitch. Does this make sense?

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.

Personally I still haven't wrapped my mind around the difference between a yarn over and a yarn forward...but there is a fabulous description with photos here.

I've always taken yfwd and yb (yarn back) to mean the same a yo.
