When going from p to knit, you only have to lay the yarn over the top of the needle loosely and that makes a yo that's like half a wrap.
Ahhh... I think I get it. I wasn't equating the laying over to a YO ... I guess because it didn't actually go around the needle. Must be brain freeze. The office is like a morgue today.
