Simple Question (Pass YO over K2)

[FONT=Palatino Linotype]Hi everyone! It’s been quite a while since I’ve been on here…and so I’ve become a little rusty since I haven’t picked up needles in a while (cross county move to blame for that).

Anyways, I’m working on the Bamboo Cloth Variation 1 Dishcloth, and I’m having a little brain freeze when it says for Row 1:

K3, YO, K2, pass YO over K2 Rep to last 3 stitches, K3

I’m struggling with the pass the yarn over. I’m reading this as I knit 3, then yarn over, continue to knit 2, and I’m wondering how to pass my yarn over K2.

Like I said…I’m rusty!

Another variation I found was: [FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=2]YRN to M1, K2, pass M1 over K2
I guess I’m just lost on passing my yarn over K2. I’m trying to talk it out…and play around on the needles, but still facing a road block. I keep thinking of trying to pass a yarn over K2 together…but I don’t think that’s it.

Any video would be greatly appreciated.

I’d say pass the yo over both of the knit stitches. You’re not really making an increase since the YO gets taken off right away, so there’s no need for a k2tog. It’s just a decorative touch.

Yeah that “yo, k2, pyoo 2” is the bump on the bamboo.

[I]I’m having such a terrible mental block with trying to do this! I know it’s not THAT hard.

There’s no video out there right? I looked in the Glossary and didn’t see anything. [/I]

Welcome back, Dink! :waving:

You just do the YO, k2, then stick your left needle into the YO and pull it over the two knit stitches and off the needle. Like you do when you’re binding off… Make sense?

Here’s a picture- it shows it with a slipped stitch, but it’s the same principle.

Thank you Jan! I think I [I]finally[/I] understand it. I wanted to try it last night, but my mom moved my yarn/needles because my aunts were coming over…hopefully tonight I can give it a whirl. I’m flying to CA tomorrow, so I was hoping to do this on the plane.

Thanks again!

You’re welcome, have a safe trip!:thumbsup:
