what does "sm" stand for in row 2? and found in row 34 of front increases? I am not familiar with that abbreviation, and could not find it in the knitty abbreviation section. thanks. Cannot wait to make it.

SM = slip marker :) It just means to slip the stitch marker from the left needle to the right needle.
