which stich to pick up...Help!!
I am making a blanket, and the last row of stiches was k2 together and then yo, the next row is knit every stich, but when i am picking up the stiches there is somethign that is not right. the hole that the stitch is supposed to make disappears...i was just wondering which stich i should be picking up so that the hole doens't disappear... i've been trying to pick up the knitted stich first and then the yarn over, and i did it the opposite way as well and it just doesnt' look right...any help will be greatly appreciated.!!

Treat the yo as a regular stitch and knit it. It will appear that it 'disappears,' but you are really creating an eyelet--which is the purpose of the yo in this case.

I'm sorry--I didn't quite get what you meant. I find, and I have no idea if this is the situation in this case, that sometimes when I am working on the back of a place where I have decreases and yos, that the k2 stitch gets pulled up around the needle a bit when I do the yo.

So on the next row, when I have to work into the yo, it's kind of pulled up over the top of the needle. I have to roll the stitch down on the needle toward me to reach where the yo strand actually is. Take a look at your stitches, and if it seems like the stitch part is up on the needle, roll it down toward you and knit into the strand that comes down with it. See if that helps.

If you have no clue what I'm talking about, and I won't be at all surprised if you don't, let me know and I'll see if I can post a picture, since the shawl I'm working on is having this exact problem.
