"FL" usually mean "free loop" which is the same as the "front loop". I have it illustrated by the term "free loop" in some of my old patterns. It really means the same thing. good luck

I believe this answer is incorrect. "FL" means front loop if the "chain stitch" "BL" means "back loop" of the chain stitch. "FP" FRONT POST and "BP" BACK POST are when you go down to previous rows. GOOGLE FP stitch and BP stitch. It will show and explain this stitch. Hope this helps. (trinka4@juno.com)

After reading the pattern I would say FL means front loop and BL means back loop. Usually when you make this stich you drop down to the stitch in the previous row bleow the next stitch to be made. goo luck

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT "FL" MEANS. BL MEANS BACK LOOP. DOES FL MEAN FRONT LOOP. ALSO, STATES TO WORK BELOW THE ROW? WANT TO MAKE THIF FLOWER THANKS
