yarn over between purl and knit
I am working on the Lacy Ribbed Top in Creative Knitting. One of the repeats is *k2, yo, p3, yo* and the second yo is the one causing me some grief here. If I wind the yarn around the right needle like i do the first one, the stitch is backwards when i get to the next row. If I leave the yarn in front after the purl and knit the next stitch, the eyelet looks a lot smaller than the first one. There are a lot of rows with eyelets in similar patterns so I would like them to look comparable. Any thoughts?

A YO is wrapped around the needle the same direction as a knit st, and I wonder if you're wrapping the sts wrong. When I do a full wrap from a knit to a purl (yarn to front, over the needle and to the front again to purl) it makes the YO a lot larger than just taking the yarn over the top of the needle loosely to purl the next st. That way is what makes it backwards, but I just work it tbl on the next row and it comes out about the same size as a YO between 2 knits.
