Please show the knitting term ssk with illustrations?


can't give you illustrations but. SSK means slip stitch knit. Which means slip the next stitch onto the needle as though you will knit it then knit the next stitch instead keeping the slipped stitch on the needle and go ahead and finish the row.

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 ssk mean in knitting and do you have a list of different meanings for kniting


Slip slip knit or SSK is a basic way to decrease stitches. It makes a decrease that slants to the left and is often paired with knit two together, which is a right-slanting decrease.

To execute this decrease, slip the first stitch as if to knit, slip the second stitch as if to knit, then slide the left-hand needle into the front part of both stitches and knit them together.
