The y/o will act as an increase. However, to do this stitch correctly, you will start the knit stitch but don't take it off the needle, y/o, then knit the same stitch through the BACK of the needle and then take the stitch off the needle.

Row 1 is knit, YO, knit all in the one stitch. Knit the stitch, but don't take it off the needle, yo (or bring yarn to the front), then knit into the stitch again and let it drop off the left needle. You now have 3 sts on the right needle.

In this type of increase, you don't knit the 2nd one into the back, just into the front next to the first one. It's a design effect as well as an increase.

I think that I have it. I really feel like the knitting into the back thing is difficult, but maybe my stiches are too tight. Anyway, I think this may look like the corner of a dishrag

You don't knit into the back with this one and that makes it easier. Knit into the front as usual, yo, then knit into the stitch next to the first one. Scooch it toward the tip a bit so you have a little extra room.

I'm with you...and still confused about this stitch. Did anyone 'get it'?

Think of the yfwd as a yo, that may help. Knit into the st, leave it on the needle, yo by wrapping the yarn around the needle, knit into it again.

See if this video helps at all. It's being done in the middle of a row but the idea is the same.

Too funny! What a blast from the past. I started this thread 3 years ago. That was my very FIRST project. And yes, I did get it, and have in fact made about 5 or 6 of these same rags along with blankets, booties, sweaters, hats, diaper covers, ect.....

And it all started here!!!!

Hang in there. Once you get it, it is like OHHHHHHH!!!!
