yfwd is a yarn forward...it's similar to a yarn over and actually kind of how I do a yarn over in Portuguese knitting, where you change the position of the yarn before knitting the next stitch (versus wrapping over the needle).

can you please tell me what the Letters yfwd stands for love to try this ...email me at hotapple44@hotmail.com ...ths

I have a question on the Feathered Dishcloth. What is meant by the letters Yfwd I have never seen this ternaknowlege. Please eamil me and let me know. I wish to thank you for answering this question. I like the pattern and would love very much to knit it. God bless you. Carolyn Trammell, cjd33us@yahoo.com

The pattern for the multicolour one is on here, listed under the Crochet section - here is the link: http://www.favecrafts.com/Kitchen-Crochet/Squares-Dishcloth-from-Bernat http://tinyurl.com/34u4bqq

This is the basic granny square. There are many resources to get the instructions - quite easy if you can double crochet and chain. Hope this helps!
