Help with yfwd
I am getting conflicting instructions on how to do a yarn forward.
I have done things with yo but these instructions say yfwd and when I have search this stitch, there are different people with different instructions on how to do it. Help please you wonderful knitting experts.

In these instructions you would bring the yarn forward and around the needle and back to do your next stitch which is a knit. That would make it an increase stitch the same as a yo instruction.
Sometimes patterns call for a yfwd to slip a stitch and then brought back for the next knit which wraps the base of your slipped stitch.
I find following instructions exactly will make sense after.

It just means to bring the yarn forward between the needles like you do with a YO.

It appears in this case it's making an eyelet/yo as it's combined with decreases.
