Use pfb on the purl stitch if that's the one at the end of a row. Though it won't hurt to do it as a kfb either, since it's on the edge it might be hidden.

In this pattern, the yfwd IS a yo. Some people think of a yo as bring the yarn to the front then work the next stitch or decrease.

The 'amp;' is short for 'ampersand' which is the name of the & symbol, apparently the page didn't render it correctly. So it's just the kfb increase.

You don't pass the yo over, just the slip stitch. Written out, skpo means 'slip 1, k1 pass slipped st over'. The 'o' is for over and is part of 'po' for 'pass over'.

Cotton doesn't stretch a lot and when washed, goes back to it's knit size.

You could look at bamboo or linen; they tend to stretch a little too, but when knit at a denser gauge not as much.

The left side would be as you wear it, so you would hold it with the RS out looking at the back neck or left side of it. I can't get your word doc to open so you may need to copy the rows where it...

I think it's a wording problem. The 'both' is referring to the yo and slipped stitch - the strands of 'both of them'. It could be written to say "both strands of the yarn-over and the st".

I think it's knit flat for the stripes because it's like an intarsia pattern - the strips are vertical, not horizontal.
