Yarn Over Question

Question: I have worked on several patterns that call for a YO in a row. I don’t know what to do when I knit back over that row. Do I knit the yarn that is now on the needle? Do I slip it off and knit the next real stitch? Does this make sense??? :shrug:
Thanks in advance,
Meredith

You treat it as a real stitch. If the directions have you purling across that row, purl the yo stitch, or knit if that’s what they call for. Once it’s on there, it stays–it’s an increase as well as an eyelet.

Sometimes, for a dropped-stitch pattern, you do a yo and drop it off, but the directions tell you specifically to do that.

Great! That’s what I needed to know! Thanks
