Please Help With These Directions!!!
 
Hi!
I need help understanding these directions. I have never done yarn overs at the beginning of a row and /or slip a stitch to knit them together while on the right needle.

My pattern says;
Row 32: * O (yarn over), sl 1, k tog the YO and sl st of previous row, repeat from * across, end with k 1.
Row 33: K1, *O, sl 1, K tog the O and sl st of previous row, repeat from * across
Repeat rows 32 and 33 four times.
Row 42:* K1, K tog the O and sl st of previous row, repeat from * across, end with K1. There are now 49 sts. You are now ready to start decreasing for sole pf bootie.


I have done yarn overs before between a knit and a purl and between a purl and a knit, etc and slipped stitches, but had never encountered this type of direction. How do I do this!? :doh: I have 70 stitches on my needle right now. These are directions for baby booties. Please help! The baby was born a week ago and I need to finish these booties as a gift ASAP :knitting: .
Thank you very much

Are the red characters supposed to be *YO?

YO at the beginning of a row

You'll be knitting the YO and sl from the prev row by inserting your right ndl into those sts on your LEFT ndl...NOT the sts you just made.

knitting together the sl stitch and the YO of from the previous row could just be written as 'knit together the nxt 2 stitches on your left needle.

It's so funny because as I slept on it last night, I thought about how stupid I was about my question about the knitting of the yo and sl st of previous row. Of course, that's all I did in the whole entire previous row!
But, thank you sooooooooo much for your help!!! I got the yo at the beginning of the row! It worked out perfect!
