Sorry to ask another question but here goes!

I am about to start a pattern (an 8 row one) and one row is as follows:

K1 *yfrn, P3tog, yon, K1; rep from * to end.

So, my question is, what is the difference between yfrn and yo?

If anyone knows of any online videos showing them than that would be super useful.

It is similar to a YO, just backwards.  Excerpt from here:http://www.ringaroundtherosies.prettyposies.com/archives/000037.html

I had to look up the abbreviations on the Audrey blog a couple of times to figure out that YFRN (pronounced in my head as "yern fern") means DON'T bring the yarn towards you to purl, just purl, dammit. It creates a backwards YO. Those British can think of 40 different variations on a YO (which they never refer to as such) and they're ALL in this pattern.

Hope that helps!
