tog = together

SPECIAL ABBREVIATIONS

C4L = slip next stitch onto a cable needle and hold at front of work, k3sts from left hand needle, then k1 st from cable needle

C4R = slip next 3sts onto a cable needle and hold at back of work, k1 st from left hand needle, then k3sts from cable needle

STITCH EXPLANATION

The yarn over needle (yon) and yarn around needle (yrn) both serve the same purpose – to make a stitch to correspond with the stitch(es) that is(are) lost when working a k2tog or a SKPO(SKTPO).  They are just worked slightly differently dependent on where they are placed in the pattern and what stitch follows:

Yarn over needle (yon) = is worked after a purl stitch before the next knit stitch. As the working yarn is already in front of the work from working a purl stitch, take yarn to back of work, then wrap the needle again, thus having a loop over the needle and the working yarn again at back of work.

Yarn around needle (yrn) = is worked after a knit stitch before the next purl stitch. As the yarn is already at back of the work from working a knit stitch, bring yarn to front of work, then wrap the needle again, thus having a loop around the needle and the working yarn again in front of work. *Note*: On following rows you will need to work into the back loop of the yon to make the eyelet hole.
