Clarity/YO/ decreasing & increasing
Hi,

I had a question regarding the episode of Knitty Gritty this morning. You don't have to see the show to answer this question.

They were working on a lace pattern. The knitter was doing continential style. I do english. When she got to the first YO, K2tog she said that you don''t have to worry about increasing (after the K2tog) because the YO creats a stitch. In English the YO doesn't. You just move the yarn to the front. Correct? If there's a continential knitter out there maybe you can answer the question........Does YO create a stitch in continential only?

Thanks!
Heather

The yarn over ALWAYS creates a stitch, whether you are knitting English or Continental. It makes a pretty little eyelet in your knitting, which is why it is often used in lace. In conjuction with the increase, as you said, there is a decrease, like the K2tog.
