Terms Switched YO/YRN
Row 2 states:
k4, (yrn, p3, yo, k4, p1, k4)

Row 4 states:
k4, (yo, p7, yrn, k4, p1, k4)

MMario explained the 4 different kinds of yo and that made sense for Row 2...but now I'm confused that Row 4 does the opposite...this is a new pattern for me and I'm a new knitter...Thanks in advance for the help!

It's because in R 4 you're going from a purl to a knit. All you have to do there is carry the yarn (loosely) over the top of the needle to the back and knit the 4 sts.

Sue...what am I not seeing...the rows look exactly the same to me except that the yo and yrn are reversed.

They're not quite the same, though it is odd that they'd reverse them. Just know that yrn is the same as a YO and that's what you do on both rows. Could be just a typo.

It looks like the author may just use yo and yrn interchangeably.

I prefer to just call all four types "yarnover" and just work them however they fall.
