Morning, I am trying to knit a pattern which bought CHICK Baby 4 ply Code 11.075 and am unsure of the abbreviation SY2K. As I am knitting the number of stitches just increases all the time. thanks


SY2K, means slip yarn, knit 2 together. Or yarn over needle and knit 2 together. This means you are not increasing only making pattern

How do I make a bobble k1 yfwd k1 twice =5 how do I knit into 1 stitch


K1 Yarn forward K1, K1Yarn forward K1 all into the next one stitch. This will make 5 stitches out of one on the right pin. I would then slip, one at a time is easier, those five back onto your left pin and knit them back onto the right pin. Knit these five stitches on the right pin (that you have just created out of 1 stitch) all together which will bring you back to the original stitch. Lots of different ways to make this stitch. Don't forget that by putting your Yarn fwd (nearest to your body) then knitting a stitch it will make one of your five. Some patterns say yon or Yarn over needle. Exactly the same stitch. Hope I haven't made this too confusing. It's a fiddly stitch but just practice.

What do yon and yfrn mean in a knitting pattern?


yon is usually Yarn On (or over) Needle. This is a yarn over between a purl and a knit stitch. (After the purl stitch, keep the working yarn in front of the needle. Then place the right needle into the next stitch so that the right needle is behind the left needle in the stitch. Wind the yarn around the needle and pull the loop through.)

yfrn is a Yarn foward and round the needle. This is a similar yarn over to the yon but is a little larger. The difference is that the yarn over is done after a knit stitch and before a purl stitch. After the knit stitch, bring the yarn in front of the needle. Wrap the yarn anti-clockwise around the right needle so that the yarn is again at the front of the work. Place the right needle in the front of the next stitch on the left needle. Then do a normal purl stitch.

You can see some videos and still photos here: http://www.stitcharena.com/library/hand-knitting/yfwd-yfrn-yrn-and-yon/ .

I hope this helps.

What does the abbreviation SKTPO in knitting stands for?


The abbreviation explanations should be included in your pattern instructions. Pattern designers sometimes use different abbreviations so it is best to refer to the included instructions.

Can you please explain further what this knitting abbreviation means k3to7= knit 3 sts together w/o dropping them of the needle, yo, repeat 2 more times, knit 3 sts together once more, slip sts off the...


It looks like you would scoop up three stitches instead of one and then instead of transferring them over to the other needle you would yarn over and repeat that action twice more, then scoop up three stitches knit and count how many stitches you have if you do it right you have increased the row from 3 stitches to 7.

Try and see if it looks right. Bill in Oregon

What does knit over mean


Read the pattern again. You may be doing short rows. Buy a more detail knitting book. If you can go to Knit and Crochet Today it's a tv show that has a website they have experts in knitting and crocheting. Sure there is a demo or someone you can ask to explain in detail. I think the show comes on Thursday in Chicago but its once a week on cable/satellite on pbs.
