I love the patterns for the matching lace cardigans. They would be a wonderful gift for my daughter-in-law and her daughter. Thanks for making those patterns available.

yon means """"yarn over needle""" yfwd means """ yarn forward"""" hold the yarn forward before you slip the next stitch. This is one abbreviation that I have not seen before so I called Joann's in Canada to find out what it means. Christivas when I made this blanket I just used the American way of doing this because I found it difficult and I am an expert knitter.
