View Full Version : p1, (p1,k1) into double yo, p1
09-06-2010, 03:36 AM
I've decided to try and get a bit more adventurous with my knitting, but have already hit a hurdle.
Row 1 (RS) *ssk, yo twice, k2tog; repeat from * across
Row 2 (WS) *p1, (p1,k1) into double yo, p1; repeat fom * across
I worked out row 1, but don't know how to do the second row. Can anyone help me?
Thank you very much.:knitting:

The yo twice leaves 2 loops on the needle. When you get to them on the next row, purl into the first loop, knit into the other one. You may have to hold the 2nd loop with your finger while you purl into the first one so the don't both drop off. Then YO - from the knit, bring the yarn to the front between the needles, back up over the top and around to the front again so you can purl the next stitch.

Sue, from your reply it sounds like you are saying there is a YO in row 2. There isn't. It uses a yo but it is just referring to working into the "double yo". I just thought I would clarify this so the gal wasn't confused. Your answer up to where you said, "Then YO" was spot on.

The double YO is in row 1. Probably should have mentioned that...

Thank you for replying so quickly. I will now sit down and try again.

this explanation made sense, but I'm still not sure about these directions: Round 10: *[yo] 2 times, ssk, k2tog, rep from * to end
Round 11:*([k1, yo] 4 times, k1) into double yo, ssk, rep from * to end.
Do I do all the steps in between the ( ) of round 11 into the first part of the double yo from round 10?

Yes, do the k1 yo 4 times and k1 into each double YO from the previous round.

Yes, do all the steps in parnetheses ([k1, yo] 4 times, k1) into the double yo. The double yo is like one big stitch and is giving you extra yarn to accommodate all these sts.
