I have been surfing the Lace and Eyelets Harmony book and have a question about some of the instructions....say the Lacy Diagonals or the Twin Leaf Lace Pattern...(pages 145 and 144).

the instructions read "k2tog, yf, k1".  "yf" is defined as "yarn in front".  Why should the yarn be moved In front when you are going to knit another stitch... there is no other slip stitch or yo in the instruction?  what am i missing?

thanks so much for the info

Maybe it means yo - if it's a lacy stitch that would make sense.  I couldn't find a reference to YF in my books - only YFON - Yarn Forward and Over Needle.  Which is just a yarn over.

at the back of the Harmony book it defines "yf" as yarn to the front  and it lists "yo" as yarn over.

Yf before a knit stitch is a yarn over. It's a term used more commonly in Britain.
