I see there is some confusion about the pattern for this lovely afghan. There are different abbreviations but they are all basically the same thing. Yfwd is a yarn over between two knit stitches, and yrn is a yarn over between two purl stitches. These days it's easy to look things up online, even watch a video if you like to see how it's done.

yfwd means...1 stitch knit wit h yarn forward.

What you are being told to do is knit 4 sts. Then, bring the yarn to the front of the work as if you were going to purl the next stitch. Insert your working needle into the next stitch in preparation for knitting it, take the yarn back over the working needle (forming a yarn over) and knit the next two stitches. It'd really be clearer to say "K4, YO, K2, P2."

Hi Have you tried to go to knittinghelp.com. It's a great site for when you don't understand a stitch. It has videos you can watch that shows you how to do different stitches from easy to difficult. Hope this helps Marleen

I have tried starting this pattern several time without success - I always end up ripping it apart and starting over. I am confused by the "K4. yfwd. K2. P2" sequence - when you bring the yarn forward, when do you bring it back? Please help - I would really like to attempt this pattern. Thanks.
