  1. In one of your patterns you use ym in the directions. What does ym mean? Need to know ASAP to continue. Thanks!!

  2. how is yrn (yarn round needle) different from a yarn over (yo)?

    1. I would use yarn over when on a knit stitch and yarn round needle on purl stitch.

  3. beautiful blanket. is the sl knitwise or purlwise? Thank you.

    1. I always slip the first stitch of every row knitwise and knit the last stitch. This gives me a neat edge. But it is not critical in any way - so if you prefer a different method that is just fine. M

  4. Love this pattern, thanks so much.
