The problem with this pattern is in Row 5 - where it says yfwd I think it should be yrn (yarn round needle) otherwise you lose stitches every 5th row. After 2 false starts will try this way and hope I'm right :)

"yfwd" means what it is i.e "yarn forward"

Looks to me like Row 4 is either missing or the rows are mis-numbered. could you please tell me what is correct. Thank you

hi bardag77 pattern for 4th row is similar with 2nd row

HI. I am a newbie too, looked it up and its the same as "yo". So you yo then sl1 (slip 1 stitch)... I am trying to knit this one too... in the future you can google "knitting abbreviations" or just use the link below for more instructions, I have found this page to be very helpful! httpwww.knittinghelp.comvideosknitting-glossary
