Help! I think I'll be hearing a frog in my near future....
Being quite a novice still (knitting less than a year), I am still learning new things and will be for quite some time....probably forever! Anyway, I am knitting a baby hat on circular needles. When you get to a certain point, you ssk, k8, yo, ssk, k8, yo, etc.....

My problem is, when I read in the directions how to do the yarnover, I did what it said. I am finding it is leaving holes in my knitting. Just now I looked at the video on here (which I should have done to begin with!! ) and it looks as if after you do the yarnover you do a purl on the very next stitch? Is that correct?

Thanks for any help....Lord knows I need it!

pat.

YO's are SUPPOSED to leave holes!! You're ssk is a decrease that is off-set by the yo increase. If there wasn't supposed to be a hole--in this case an eyelet rather than a hole--you would have done a different increase.

Embrace your eyelets--they're supposed to be there!!

The yellow thing is a banana. :rollseyes: I think he may be getting overripe. Maybe it's time to look for a new avatar. :thinking:
