Is Yf (yarn forward) a form of increase knitting ?
(Hackettstown, NJ USA)
I was just reading a pattern that states: Increase Row, change to the longer needles *yf, k1; Repeat from * to the end.
Is Yf a form of increasing the row? This pattern is for a toddler skirt. I understand yf is yarn forward, but then I would have to knit so then I would be performing a yarn over correct? I am a little confused since I am not a professional knitter.
Yf and yo are the same in this case. Knitting yf, k1 repeatedly will increase number of stitches by double. Yes, it is like doing *yo, k1; and repeat. You understood it correctly.
Thank you for the question,
