I'm going to attempt the heart scarf in a special knitty edition but i've never done anything lacy before and i've run into some problems with the pattern.

I understand everything in the pattern i'm just having issues grasping how to do yo, sl1 and psso i know these are probably really easy and i'll hit myself later but can anyone explain how i should attempt these stitches or point me to an online tutorial?

one last thing I can't find the reynolds blizzard yarn that the pattern calls for but i do have three skeins of patons up country ( http://www.patonsyarns.com/product.php?LGC=upcountry ) in my stash could I substitute that for the listed yarn?

Thanks for your time

it's easier than it sounds!  basically, what you're doing is binding off one stitch.

when you get to the part in the pattern for the sl1, if it's a knit side, insert your
right needle into the loop as if you were going to knit, but instead of picking up
the yarn, just moving it to the right needle. 

you didn't say in your post, but usually if it's the knit side, you'll knit the next stitch

now you have one slipped stitch and one knit stitch on your right needle.

after that, just take your left needle, insert it back into the stitch you slipped over,
and loop it over the stitch you've knit.  this is your psso.

there you go!

i didn't have time to do all of the conversions for the yarn, but it looks like the
patons might be a little lighter than the reynolds.  you can knit up a gauge swatch
and see if it matches the pattern - if it does, you're good to go.

i did find the reynolds blizzard on-line at patternworks.com, too, if the paton doesn't work out.

good luck!

Does anyone have a link to the pattern? I searched through knitty's archives and I can't find it. Thanks!

It's in the Breast Cancer Awareness mini-issue, which you can download by clicking on the link in the archive page.

Thank you! I got sidetracked and used the intended yarn for this weird scarf---it kinda looks like I have a red fishnet stocking around my neck, but I think it came out kinda sexy. I'll have to buy some more, as the rest of it has to be made into a bootie (got sidetracked from that project by my birthday yarn!).
