Problem with a pattern
What does "yarn over" mean? I've been avoiding patterns with this term because I just don't understand what they mean by it and now I really want to work on an afghan and almost every other stitch is "yarn over"...
Please help!!
Thanks!

basically you are just doing a wrap around the needle. if you go to this page...
http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...ons_explained/

and scroll down (they are alphabetical!) you will find a video clip of how to do it for both english (blue) and conti-(pink) knitters. super easy...no reason to avoid it (unless you are like me and don't want to have to be bothered with thinking about a pattern quite that much!...lol)

A yarn over is a way to make a hole and a new stitch at the same time!
