Working the WS of 2 YO
I'm trying my first really really lacy project and I'm having trouble with the 2 YOs that are next to each other (there is a place marker in between but it isn't helping me keep the stitches separated). I have to purl them on the WS but I think, while trying to purl the first stitch, the second one just slips off

It's doubly frustrating since the yarn I'm using is especially hairy and the stitches are hard to see :(

Is there some trick to working 2 YOs in a row?

Please help!

Are you sure there's not a k1 between them? What pattern is it?

Usually when there's 2 YOs you generally do a p1 into one loop and knit 1 into the other. Or a p1, ptbl, or k1 ktbl. You can't purl into both of them or knit into both of them, you'll just get a really big hole.

Doh! I was reading the pattern wrong. Hopefully now that I know what she meant, it will be easier to knit. Thanks. Btw it's the Swallowtail shawl by Evelyn something...oops, I forgot her name.

Evelyn Clark. Oh right, there's no double YOs in there, you work the pattern to the center st, k1, and repeat the chart/pattern again.

Usually when there are double YOs the pattern will specifically tell you what to do with them on the next row.
