Yarn forward means to bring the yarn to the front of the work (as if you were about to do a purl stitch).

Yarn forward means to bring the yarn to the front as if you are going to purl. If you knit the next stitch, it will create a yarn-over eyelet, which is also an increase.

If you check out the Glossary tab above, Amy has many videos and explanations of the various abbreviations in patterns.
