Yfwd, sl.1, K.2 tog, psso, etc. How to do yfwd?
ello, I have a question to get me restarted on a complicated sweater I put aside, and then forgot how to do. This is a pattern from the U.K. so the instructions are written differently than an American pattern would be. Here's what it says: K4,P2,yon,K1,yfwd,sl.1,K2tog.,psso,(K6,P3) twice,K6, K3tog,yfwd, K1 yrn,P2. Questions: Are the yon, yfwd, and yrn all increases? Also, what am I meant to do with the yarn when it is forward in the yfwd when I sl.1 then K2tog. and psso? My pattern in subsequent rows does not line up, so something is clearly wrong with the way I'm doing it--and redoing it--and redoing it! Thanks for any help.

Not sure on the "yon"

K1,yfwd,sl.1,K2tog.,psso- With this you will knit 1, yo(bring yarn between needles to front), slip the next st, knit the next 2 sts together, then pass the slipped st over (yfwd means yo)

Not sure what "yrn" is.

Hope this helps some. Mary

Good Mornin (or afternoon),
This has come up a lot lately, especially with patterns written in UK terms.
Yf (yarn forward)= if the next st is a knit st is the same as a YO (yarn over)
Yon( yarn over needle)= is usually listed if the next st is a purl and is also a YO.
Yrn (yarn round needle)= YO
Hope this helps ya'll
