Knitting Abbreviations

yo (yarn over): wrap the yarn around the right-hand needle from back to front counterclockwise before knitting the next stitch. Then work the next stitch as normal.

k2tog (knit 2 together): insert the right-hand needle into the first two stitches on the left-hand needle and wrap the working yarn around the right-hand needle as if you would for a knit stitch. Pull the yarn through both stitches and slide both stitches off the left-hand needle. You have now knitted two stitches together thus resulting in a right-leaning decrease.

ssk (slip, slip, knit): slip the next 2 stitches knitwise, one at a time, insert the left-hand needle through the front of both loops and knit them together.
