Chevron Pattern Question
 
Hi!
I'd like to attempt a chevron pattern for a scarf but am confused about part of the pattern.
Row one: K1 ssk *k9 sl2 purlwise K1 P2sso K9 K2tog K1.
This I understand and will adjust the pattern for a scarf(18 sts in pattern)
Row Two: K1 *P1 K4 (K1 Yo K1) all in next stitch k4 P1 K1.
HOw do you do the K1 YO and K1 all in one stitch?
K1 and don't slip the stitch over the needle- then wrap the yarn, then knit again into the same stitch before sliiping off the needle?
Is there an easier way to do it?
Thanks in advance for any help!
Nancy

Yes--knit, bring the yarn forward between the needles, and knit into the same stitch again before you slide it off.

That's how you do it; it may seem awkward at first but you get used to it and it's a lot easier than Kfbf in the same stitch...

Thanks Ladies!
So gald to have you as my mentors as I flail around trying to make yarn happy with my assorted needles.
After I posted I searched and found that quite a few before me have struggled with this and both of you have answered- Bless you!
Next time I'll search first- promise!
Hugs,
Nancy

I'd like to try a Chevron at some point (although as slowly as I knit, it may be a while!), and would prefer to do K1 YO K1 into the same stitch than K into the front and back of the same stitch.

Thanks either way,
Laura
