Is Yarn Forward the same as Yarn Over?
I've got a Rowan pattern that calls for a yarn forward and I think it's the same as a yarn over but I wanted to make sure.

Christy :D

It usually is, especially if the following stitch is a knit, since you'll get the yo when you knit it.

Sometimes yarn forward is just to put the yarn in front for some other reason.

If you expect a yo at that point, though, then it is the same.

Thanks Ingrid! It calls for k2 after the yfwd so it sounds like I should just yo.

This site is awesome and I appreciate you sharing your expertise! Thanks again!
