I don't understand how to knit then yf

YF stands for yarn forward, its a way of doing a yo by wrapping the yarn around the needle form the back.

Sorry, there were no comments shown until after I submitted mine, then the other previous ones came up which answered my question - thank you

what does "yrn" mean when used as a stand alone stitch or yarn movement

YRN, means yarn around the needle, this is the british term for YO.

PLEASE CORRECT THE PATTERN. IE Row 5 k1, yf, k5, (pm yf, k1, yf, k3) twice, pm, yf, k1, yf, k5, yf, k1. THE START OF THE ROW SHOULD BE k1, yf, k5, YO, K1, YO......

Is the rest of the pattern correct? I have been fighting with this pattern for weeks Betsyvasas

Lovely shawl and I want to make it but I need some help with a couple of abbreviations. What does 'yf' and 'yrn' mean? I have not seen these before. Thanks.

These are YO's

yf is yarn forward and yrn is yarn round needle. Hope this helps. Happy knitting!
