Need help with a YO after a purl stitch followed by a knit stitch
I am working (after starting over because I cannot read -_-) on this adorable waffle blanket. See waffle blanket on ravelry
I am having a little problem with the last YO of the second row, which goes as follows 2: *P4, YO*. This is followed with 5 knit stitches to create the border. My problem is that the last YO puts the yarn in the wrong place to knit a stitch. I tried it a couple of times and it never seemed to come out right...Does anyone know how this should be done?Also, on the third row (3: *drop YO, YO, Sl1, K 3, PSSO*) which direction should the YO after the drop YO (which is just literally dropping the stitch? That feels SOOOO wrong) should go, knit or purl ways? Thank y'all

The YO is an increase so when you bring the yarn forward bring it over the right needle to the back and knit. There is a video in the increase section. Link at top of page.

That's a pretty blanket. The YO and dropped stitch will create the eyelets. You'll probably need to do several inches for it to show well. Make a swatch if it helps..

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
