So now I have 20. Obviously the yo's are causing me the problem. I have watched the video for doing yo's and they are increasing one. Sorry to be so dumb, but am still stumped.
Not dumb in the least. It's a good question. The main thing is to make sure that when you put the yarn over the right needle, you only have one loop for the yarn over. After the knit 2, bring the yarn to the front between the needles, then over the right needle and around to the front again so that you're ready to purl. After the p1, bring the yarn loosely over the right needle to the back and knit 2. That should give you the 18sts that you need.
