Tacking
I am coming to a point in my pattern that requires tacking. Exactly what is that and how is it done? Thanks.

Probably just taking a stitch or two to join 2 pieces. Thread the yarn on a tapestry/darning needle.

Yes, like turning up the brim of a hat an one side and putting in a sewing stitch or two to keep it turned up.
