Pattern help
The pattern I am working on is as follows over 51 stitches already on needle:
p2, *yo, sl1, k1, psso, p1, k2 tog, yo, p1, repeat from * across, ending with p2 instead of p1.

I have ripped this row out 5 times as I am doing something wrong with the yo stitches. HELP ... exactly how am I to do these yo stitches? I think my problem is due to the preceeding stitches before the yo and the stitches that follow. I really need very specific placement of my yarn for these yo stitches.

THANK YOU fellow knitters.

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
You may be right. Usually the problem is with the yarn overs.
Here's a video for a yarn over after a purl and before a knit.

When you do the YO, be careful to hold it in place on the right needle as you do the Sl 1 and the following K1. The YO can very easily be pulled over the Sl1 and be lost. Thus you end with fewer sts than you should.

Also, a YO between a P and K is quite simple. Just lay the yarn OVER the right needle from front to back, rather than moving it back BETWEEN the needles as you woud if you were directly knitting the next stitch.
