Sl1P, yo?

How do you go about doing a yo after a purl stitch?

I’m not really understanding what you are trying to do here. Could you post the full pattern so I can see how this would work out. From how its listed I dont really see why there should be any problems.

Here’s the row:
K2tog, knit 5, sl1, knit 1, psso, sl1P, yo, turn

I know how to do a yo after a knit, but not a purl.

All you should really have to do is move the yarn from the front of the needle, to the back of the needle and then yo. The more important thing about yarning over is what stitch comes after the yo. If you are are yarning over and the next stitch is a purl, you do it one way, if the next stitch is a knit, then you do it another way. Thing that confuses me about the yo, is that you have no stitch following it. A yo isn’t complete until the next stitch is finished Unless that turn is going to be a short row and the next stitch is the k2tog.

I’m sorry I’m not much better help, but that pattern confuses me.

I always end up knitting a few rows experimenting with how to get those yo right after a purl. I take the yarn over the front of the needle, then around the back to the front again. Doing a YO between a purl and a knit is a real challenge.

The yarn won’t be in the back of the needle when you slip the st purlwise, that’s just telling you how to insert the needle so the st won’t be twisted, not where the yarn is. Just leave the yarn in back, slip the st, then wrap the yarn around the needle as if you were knitting a stitch, but the needle isn’t inserted into a stitch on the left needle.

It is actually a short row, so yes the next row starts with a K2tog

I never understand why they write the yo at the end of a line. Why can’t they just put it at the beginning of the next row. It’d make more sense to me that way

Yeah, it’s easier to do too.
