When you bring the yarn forward between the needles for a purl you need to remember to move it back for the knit stitches. If you leave it forward it creates what is called a 'yarn over'. Yarn overs are valid stitches and they create a little hole. They are often used in lace, for increases, or as button holes.

It just takes practice to remember to move the yarn back.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
