Hi!

I'm knitting a scarf and I have to do YOs .. If I understand correctly, I have to do my K and YO row and on the next one I knit the Ks and I drop the YOs ... but when I do that it leaves holes and all the previous rows get undone ?!?!

Please help ... what am I doing wrong?

Thanx in advance!

You knit the YO when you get to the next row. then it shows up as a "hole"or eyelet and won't unravel. eg k1, yo, k1 is the first row then next row you would k3...use the YO as a regular stitch.

Thanx !

So when they say drop the YO stitch, i don't ? It's a drop stitch pattern ...

I had to work 6 rows in garter stitch, then ...

R1: *K1, yo; rep from * to last st, k1.
R2: *K1, drop the yo by slipping it off the needle; rep from * to last st, k1.
Rs 3 & 4: K.

So when I dropped the yo as indicated, it left holes in my garter st !!

Could you assist me a little more in this ? Greatly appreciated !

You should be able to just slip the yo off the needle without it unravelling. Since there is no stitch below the yo that's attached to it, there's no place for it to go. There will be a hole, though. Are you sure you've been dropping just the yo? Otherwise, :thinking: . Is there anyway you can post a picture?

oh...sorry about the confusion...without the whole instructons I just asumed you were treating it as a regular YO, since it leaves a hole anyway. Now that you post the whole instruction though it definitely says "drop". Maybe it should be a rather large hole? Not sure why it would unravel though. Without a pic it's hard to tell.
