Sweetheart Baby Afghan Precious in Pink
Thank you ladies for your help, I understand the pattern, Row 50 starts K16, then inc in next stitch, then do a yo, somehow it seemed so confusing, I thought it was K16,do a yo and then increase into it, which wouldn't work, finally the light went on.

But we are not knitting into a YO, the previous rows were all purls... It says K16, increase, (YO, SSK) twice.......

So, I knit 16 (that part was easy) and I am at the beginning of the heart... then I YO'd and knit into the back and front of the SSK....., they YO SSK once again....Is that right?

Three avid knitters have tried it and we all end up a little over half way through the heart and run out of instructions before the next *K 12 .....

Please help!!!

The ssk is a decrease, you don't knit into the back and front of it. It's the same as sl 1, k1 psso just done differentely - slip 2 separately knitwise, put the L needle into the front of them and knit together. The yo is just a wrap of the yarn around the needle, not a wrap and knit too.

It may help if you quote the entire row. The part that you have given: "It says K16, increase, (YO, SSK) twice......." also has an increase and it sounds from the earlier posts like this is a knit front and back. On the next row there may be some directions for what to do in the yo and ssk stitches but not on this row. Here you just k16, kfb, and go on to yo, ssk (the next 2 sts on the right needle), yo, ssk (the next 2 sts on the right needle).
