YO
Normally in a knit you would bring the needle up through the loop(left) wrap the yarn around and bring it back through the loop. In YO basically you just wrap the yarn around the needle without bringing the needle through the loop and then continue on as normal. See the video instruction. It is very helpful.

And there was me thinking it was only me who thought my questions were stupid

I actually learned something from that question so it wasnt stupid at all.

"Fancy" stuff in knitting is always easier than the end result looks. Makes it easy to impress your friends!
