Please explain “drop the next loop”.
robin: “drop the next loop” simply means that you should let the loop slide off your needle without knitting it. it will form a hole in the fabric. the loop that’s dropped is the yarnover stitch that you had made in the previous row.
How do I get copies of your patterns?
hi carol: all of our patterns are digitally available online.
you can access them here
When you say “YF, yarn forward” and “YB, yarn back” do you mean to wrap the yarn around the needle or just to pass it between the needles?
Tracy, YF means that you should simply move your yarn (as if to purl) to the front of the piece. Similarly, YB means that you should move the yarn to the back of the piece (as if to knit). You are not actually wrapping the piece of yarn around the needle. Hope that helps!
