I'm a new to crochet, and am working on the baby lamb amigurumi that I found here, and in the instructions it says to "FO"

from context, it seems to mean to switch colors....I've looked in the faqs, searched online, and can't find it's meaning.

thanks for the help!

it might mean "fasten off."  what does the pattern say right before it?

fasten off would make sense...

the pattern says:

Arms: (make 2)

Using black yarn:
Rnd 1: 6 sc in a magic ring
Rnd 2: sc in each st around (6 sc) FO Join white yarn
Rnd 3 - 7: sc in each st around (6 sc)
Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing

from this pattern:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=f06066cc53438dd67e95d27e64e2a385&topic=155762.0

yeah, by reading that i think it just means to do RND 2 in black, then probably attach the white with a slip stitch?

by the way, that lamb looks so cute, i think i might have to make myself one of those!
