Thanks for the reply. I'm still confused though, so props to the teacher, and let me be more specific:
Is just the act of bringing the yarn around all that's called for in a yo? Or do you have to do a complete stitch?
In other words, my whole row is knits and the pattern says: *Ssk, k2, yo, k2, yo, k2, k2tog; rep from * to end of rnd.
So is the yo part of the k2 or a separate stitch?
Hope that makes more sense.
