Drop yarn over?

I was thinking about making this scarf for my pal for the international scarf exchange, but I’m confused. What does it mean on row 2 when it says drop yarn over? How do I do this?

A yo is creating a new stitch, on future rows it will have added a stitch (albeit a loose-feeling one). Drop it just like dropping a stitch.


Yup, just let it slide off the needle point.

So it won’t unravel? This makes me nervous.

It won’t unravel because it’s not connected to the stitches below it.

Ok, I’m going for it. Thanks!!
