We report magnetic properties of the antiferromagnet YMn2 as functions of pressure and temperature (T) obtained from the 55Mn spin-lattice relaxation rate and the Knight shift. An energy-band narrowing due to electron correlation is indicated by the Knight shift measurement and the application of pressure is found to enhance the conduction electron bandwidth. In the pressure-induced paramagnetic state, the system undergoes a crossover from an itinerant spin fluctuation (SF) regime at low T to a local SF regime at high T. It is pointed out that this magnetic crossover of SF resembles that of high-temperature superconductors.
