Dropped st diamond pattern: AHHHH!
I'm making this scarf that is half seed stitch and half a dropped stitch diamond pattern. I'm to the dropped stitch pattern and I'm sooo confused.

FYI, you CO 19 sts.

Row 1: (k2, yo, k1, yo twice, k1, yo twice, k1, yo, k1) rep 3 times, k1.

I can only get about 1.5 reps through and I run out of stitches. What am I doing wrong?

By counting the row 1 sts, 19 should be correct. Maybe it will help to spell out the entire first row...k2, yo, k1, yo twice, k1, yo twice, k1, yo, k1, k2, yo, k1, yo twice, k1, yo twice, k1, yo, k1, k2, yo, k1, yo twice, k1, yo twice, k1, yo, k2
One thing that might throw you off is YO twice...when you YO you aren't actually working a stitch...if you are then that would explain why you run out of sts

So, a yo is just when you place your yarn in front of your needle and not that and the knit stitch that comes after?

When I did "yo twice" it took two stitches...

I'll go try it again...

When you yarn over, you don't do anything with a stitch at all...you just put the yarn over the right needle then go to the next stitch. To do it twice you wrap around twice.

When you come to it again on the next row it acts as a new stitch and creates the holes that make a lace pattern. In your case you might treat it as two new sts on the next row since you did it twice. Depends on the pattern.

I get it! You wrap the yarn around the needle twice!
Yes, on the next row you drop the yo off the needle.
Thank you Kemp!
