Please Help... :)
Hey All,

New to the group and need a little help with a few terms that weren't really in the glossary.

Can you please tell me what this means?

*YTB, p2tog* (making extra st)
I know it's purl two together but YTB and extra stitch?

*k1, k into back of next st*

Also, I need to know if there is another way to drop yarn. I usally drop a yarn and knit up the side until I need the yarn again. However, I am using different yarns then the ones that are used in the pattern. I am using an eyelash type of yarn and do not want to knit up the sides with that. What is another way? Cut and knot?

Here's a link to the pattern:

Hope you can help me and thanks for your help!

YTB = yarn to back, basically, it's a yarn over but by having the yarn start at the back of the work instead of wrapping the yarn around the needle and then doing a p2tog.

Knit 1 stitch then knit into the back leg of the next stitch instead of the front leg as you would do normally. This twists the stitch.
