YO at the beginning of a row
I'm sure this topic has been asked and answered before, but no matter how I search I get a huge number of search results, almost none of having anything to do with yarnovers. So I just decided to ask again. Sorry if this has been dealt with recently

How do I make a YO at the beginning of a row? Either knit or purl row.

Thank you!

I (and I might be doing it wrong ) just make sure that my yarn is in the opposite spot to where it is supposed to be when I start my row... ie. If i'm about to knit, instead of having my yarn in the back, I'll have it in front so when you wrap your stitch, your going over the needle creating a yo, the same for purl, I'll have it at the back instead of front (but bear in mind, doing a purl yo this way, instead of wrapping under then over, creates a smaller yo, so you might want to see how you prefer your yo's to look on purl rows)...

I hope this helps you a little, otherwise there will be plenty of others along later to offer advice too!

I don't know if I'm doing this right either, but I just wrap the yarn around the needle before I knit (or purl) the first stitch. And then I pull the first stitch tight so that it will tighten what I've wrapped.

OK I must be dense (and I've even had my first cup of coffee).. I'm trying to visualize the whole thing but don't quite get it. Do you hold the yarn in front/back, then knit/purl the first stitch?
I'm not able to get how to wrap the yarn when the working yarn is still in the left needle..

Would anyone have a link to a picture or video?

Thank you!

ETA: I tried it on a tiny swatch last night and made a mess

Just make sure the yarn is over your needle before you make the first stitch. You could just wrap it around, make the stitch and take off any excess so it wouldn't be wrapped around twice.

The way I do it is...put your needle in the stitch like you're going to knit, then take the yarn over the needle and knit as usual. Is that about as clear as mud?
