So, here's the dilemma: The pattern I'm working on calls for a P1, YO, SSK. I'm kind of new to knitting so I found a video that said that you purl as normal, but because the yarn is already in front, you don't actually have to do a YO, you can just go directly into an SSK.
Is that correct? Everything else I've read seems to say to do the actual YO, so I'm kind of confused. And if I have to wrap the yarn around the needle, I'm not sure on the direction coming off of a purl -- CCW or clockwise?
Thanks for the help,
