what does "O" mean on a vintage pattern?
by: Ratchadawan

I had and idea that "O" stood for "yarn over" because we do use a lot of yarn over and k2 tog in lace patterns. I did a little searching and I got an confirmation from http://www.knitting-and.com/homework/vintage-terms.htm that support my thinking. So yes, O is for yarn over.

Thanks for visiting and have fun knitting!
