Another new knitter question

I’m sure this is easy as pie, but I’m not sure what it means to do.

Cast on 5 sts.
Row 1: knit 1, yarn over, knit to end…

This is the beginning of a scarf pattern I want to make. I know what yarning over means in crochet, and I assume it means in knit, just what it says, to wrap the yarn over the hook…er I mean needle. What I am not sure of is, does it mean to wrap the yarn over one time before each knit stitch across the row? :??

Nah … it means to wrap just once. If you were supposed to wrap before each stitch it would read something like this: K1, *(yo, K1) rep * to end. Check out Amy’s Video about “YO”. (It’s at the bottom of the link.)
Hope that helps!!

Duh! I feel dumb. :oops: I didn’t realize it was a term for ‘increase’. I have watched some of Amy’s increase videos, but never went all the way to the bottom of that page. :doh:

Thank you for your help. I can’t guarantee I’ll know what the next steps of the pattern are saying, so I may be back with another dumb question, but I really appreciate your help. :lol:

Naahhh! No problem. :wink:

So which scarf is it? Is it online w/ any pics … :mrgreen:

Yes, it’s online. You mean there’s another way of getting patterns? :shock: :mrgreen:

Here’s the link to it.

There is a video demonstrating YO in the “Abbreviations Explained” section.


Obviously, I’ve not gotten around enough. I hadn’t even discovered that page yet! :shock:

Thank you! :smiley:
