Thanks for your help. Here are the exact directions: R3: K4 (K2tog) 3 times, (YO, K1) 5times, YO, (K2tog) 6 times, repeat to last 15 sts, end (YO,K1), 5 times, YO, (K2tog) 3 times, K4.
It says, NOTE: When working ro w 3, the YO's are worked through the back to twist the stich. This makes the holes make by the YO's smaller, so they are not as likely to catch on small fingers and toes.
I make take a knitting class on Saturday morning to figure this out. I've never done a YO, and the I have difficulty looking at pictures in the books I have and knowing if I'm doing it correctily. I think I can figure out the YO, but backwards with a twist throws me through a loop.
