Yarn Over

I think I’ve figured out how to do the yarn over part, but what do I do with that “extra loop” when knitting or purling the following row? I just can’t figure it out - I’ve torn out an awful lot of stitches trying! Thanks for your help!! Karen

Usually just knit or purl it normally. What pattern are you doing?

If most of your sts on the next row are purls, you purl it like a regular stitch. If they’re all knit, you knit it.

Thanks, Jan - it seems so simple - I did everything except treat it as a stitch… This is my first project - a pillow. I got the pattern at a knitting shop. At the top it says “an original design by Sarah Peasley handknitter - Knits and Purls Pillows”. I’m new to knitting - love it already, though, and am amazed by what can be created just using the knit and purl stitch. Again, thanks for your help - I can now get moving again. Karen

Thanks, Sue. I had done everything except treat the loop as a stitch! I’m new to knitting and to this forum - started searching online in desperation after spending way too much time trying to figure this out on my own. Had no idea so much help and support was available - I feel much better about being able to solve future problems much more quickly. Thanks you again - Karen
