The book explains the abbreviations the author likes to use, but this particular one is not included. She also explains instances a simple abbreviation is provided and gives a few examples, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what it means.
There's even chart explanations, but I still don't know what it means
This is also because I wanted a modern adaptation of a brioche stitch from an 1800s pattern I am planning on using for something. The pattern from that one is very thorough, but it didn't say "waffle brioche". However, when trying to find modern stitch patterns for it, I found that the picture provided in the pattern I am using looks just like the waffle brioche stitch in this book.
This pattern also explains the abbreviation "slyo" before the pattern...I'll be darned. It's probably right under my nose.
I wonder if it means yarn over next stitch. but why wouldnt there be an 'o'?
I just found another stitch pattern which uses it also. It's the first I've found in the book. it's called the three and one stitch
Row1: *K3, sl1yfs*, k1
Row2: K1 *sl1yns
Row3: *K1, sl1yfs, k2*, k1
Row4: K1, *k2, sl1yns, k1*
Final Row: Knit
Here's a webpage I found showing how to do the Double Brioche which looks exactly like the one I am looking for. I am still curious as to what "yns" means though. http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/index.php?p=243
