yo from knit to purl??
Hi all,

The pattern says to k1, yo, p3; and later on, p1, yo, k3. How the hell do you do this? I know how to yo when using one type of sts, but am unable to bend my mind around this. Thx.

Both steps FEEL like you're making 2 yo's, or wrapping the yarn around twice. What you're really doing is moving the yarn to the front (or back) and then doing your yarn over. It took me a while to figure this one out, too!

I didn't look at the pictures suggested but when there's a yo before a purl st, I leave the yarn back then purl the st loosely.

When there's a yo after a purl st and before a knit st, leave the yarn in front and knit the st loosely.

I think the biggest trick is to remember where you made these yos and be sure to work the return row carefully. Hope this helps!

I assume you knit English style / throwing? if so: I am not much help.
in continental: just do one after the other and be careful to not undo the yo when doing your next stitch.
Not too scary, though. just be brave

the "next stitch just loose part sounds scary to me though. it might turn out the same but it sounds scary...
