Help with mason dixon ballband dishcloth!

Hi! I’m working on the Mason Dixon Ballband Dishcloth, and I was wondering, when I get to row five the directions say;

P4, yb, {slip 1 purlwise}, yf*p5, yb, slip 1 purlwise, yf; rep from * to last 4sts, p4.

I am not sure what to do when I get to the slip 1 purlwise-in the previous row, you slip one also w/ yf, then switch to yb…I get that. But when I get to row 5 where it says to slip one purlwise, there is that yarn over looking thing right on top basically of the next actual stitch. Do I put the right needle under both the yarn-over looking “stitch” and the slipped stitch from the previous row, or just the actual slipped stitch from the previous row? :think: I hope this is clear-maybe someone who has made this can help!

Thanks so much!

Just slip the stitch. The strand across is from where you slipped on the last row. By slipping that stitch all the time, and keeping the yarn on the same side of that stitch, you get the bands that go across the stripes.

Thanks Ingrid! I will try that :cool:
