Eyelet Scarf Pattern Woes
I have the book 60 Quick Knits for Cascade 220 yarn and I'm having a little bit of trouble with one of the easier patterns. In case anyone has the book, it is #30, the Eyelet Scarf. It says the difficulty is easy, so I'm sure that I'm just overcomplicating this and making it difficult for myself.

The pattern goes as follows:
CO 38 sts
Row 1 (RS): K2, *p1, yo, SKP, p1, k2; rep from * to end
Row 2: *P2, k1; rep from *, end p2
Row 3: K2, *p1, k2tog, yo, p1, k2; rep from * to end
Row 4: rep row 2
Rep rows 1-4 for lace pattern.

I think what is giving me the most trouble is in row 1: the p1, yo, SKP. I know yo's are slightly different depending on what kind of stitches you are going between, so I wasn't quite sure how to do one between a purl stitch and a slipped stitch.
What I've done so far just doesn't seem to be turning out as nicely as the picture in the book. I think part of the reason may be that I am not using Cascade 220 right now because no stores cloe to me carry out, so I tried it out with a different yarn. Will switching to the Cascade 220 help my scarf look more like the pattern? Any other suggestions/tips are welcome :] Thank you so much! :]

That's a good question ...

I think I would do the purl stitch, then bring the yarn back (to the "knit" position), do the yarn over, slip the next stitch, then knit the next stitch and pass the slipped stitch over. (Maybe this is what you're already doing, I don't know ...)

It might look a little different if you don't return the yarn to the "knit" position after the first purl stitch because then you'd be slipping the stitch with the yarn in front and then having to bring the yarn back to do the knit (which would wrap the yarn around the slipped stitch).

I don't have this particular book/pattern, so I'm not sure what it looks like, but from your description I think that's what I would do.

As for using a different yarn, it shouldn't make a difference as long as your yarn is a similar weight to the Cascade 220.

Purl the st, then move the yarn loosely over to the back to slip and knit the next st. If you purl then move the yarn to back to make the YO, you're doing the same thing really.
