Hi just came across your cascading leaves pattern and I think its gorgeous. I'm a beginner and trying to do different patterns now. I think I could manage this but was wondering what " yon " means.


Answer: Hi Karen,
Thank you for stopping by. I'm so glad that you're ready to move on to the next step of your knitting. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. It's quite exciting when you're working with new pattern. That's what make knitting fun.

Now to answer you question, "yon" simply mean yarn over needle.
