Yarn Over Question
Question: I have worked on several patterns that call for a YO in a row. I don't know what to do when I knit back over that row. Do I knit the yarn that is now on the needle? Do I slip it off and knit the next real stitch? Does this make sense???
Thanks in advance,

You treat it as a real stitch. If the directions have you purling across that row, purl the yo stitch, or knit if that's what they call for. Once it's on there, it stays--it's an increase as well as an eyelet.

Sometimes, for a dropped-stitch pattern, you do a yo and drop it off, but the directions tell you specifically to do that.
"Trust the pattern!"
