YO and dropping YO

Hi everyone

I am new at knitting and found you while looking for help.

I have a pattern that tells me to YO 2 which I understand But then it tells me on the next row to Knit 1 dropping both YO until end of row. This is the one I am not understanding.

Do I really just drop the stitch, like skip it, or is this some kind of decrease?

The stitches that were yarn overs on the first row will be dropped right off the needle on the next row. It will produce what’s called an elongated stitch. On this page under ‘Decorative Stitches’ you will find a video showing you what the stitch looks like and how to do it.

Good luck!!


Thank you soooooo Much!

I’m off to knt
