Lace Knit Trim: pattern help
I'm hoping someone can help me with the 6th row of a lace edge pattern:
6th row * P 1, (k 1, p 1, k 1, p 1, k 1) in double yo, p 1; repeat from * to end.

I'm fairly new to knitting and can't seem to figure out what this portion in particular means "(k 1, p 1, k 1, p 1, k 1) in double yo." Do I "double yo" in between each stitch? Or am I completing that whole sequence into 1 stitch? I couldn't come up with any answers when I googled it.

(Additional info: I'm attempting to use this lace edge on a baby bonnet as an alternative to the one the original pattern used. Any "lace" advice would be awesome as well! It's my first time creating lace aside from the original pattern I tried and didn't care for.)

Thanks so much for any help!

It wouldn't let me add the link in the original post, so here's the link to the pattern:

On the previous row you did a double yo/yo2, so when you get to it on this row, drop off one of the loops and kpkpk into the other one. That will make the large hole with the multiple stitches in it.

How pretty!

* K 2 tog, yo twice, skpo; repeat from * to end.
This is the previous row. If you worked it correctly you'll have a double yo to work all these stitches in
Quote:
(k 1, p 1, k 1, p 1, k 1) in double yo,
You can find yarnovers and k 2 tog in the free videos link, above.

Happy knitting!

Yes, the double yarn over gives you extra yarn to easily do the increases: (k 1, p 1, k 1, p 1, k 1).

Ohhhhh! Thank you! So the "in double yo" is referring to the previous row when I did the yo2.

So let me make sure I understand completely: as I start row 6, I will P1, then the next 2 stitches should be the yo2 (if I did it correctly ). So I work all these (kpkpk) stitches into just ONE of the yo stitches? So I'll drop one stitch and then kpkpk into the other one, without removing it from my needle?

Thanks so much for the clarification! I'm excited I might be able to knit something besides a scarf (using only knit stitch!).

Ask me why I included that. Does it sound like the voice of experience? If it doesn't, it should.

Haha, yes it does. Though it's a legitimate worry on my end, it was also my first time completing this "K 2 tog, yo twice, skpo" sequence. So we shall see if I managed to do that accurately tonight!

Thanks for the help everybody!
