YO Problem

Can’t figure this out. Please help:

: The pass first stitch of 3 stitches over last 2 stitches just means
you aren’t going to pass the “YO” stitch but start at the first stitch after
the yarn over and pass over the other 2 stitches

Can you tell us what the name of the pattern is and provide a link if possible. I think seeing it would help us understand.

Here is our next Cloth KAL.

November 20th 2016 KAL Day 1:

Our recommended color is white but any solid color you like is fine. Solids
turn out better on this type of KAL. Day 1 and day 2 will be posted on our
blog tomorrow. You will have a photo tomorrow on our blog of the rows after
day 1.

Everyday rows will be sent via an email; I will be “Replying” to the first
email so all of the rows will be on one email at the end of the KAL. If you
are a “Special Notice” member, you will need to get your rows for day 2
through fin al from our blog or checking our site for the “updated” emails.
Yahoo doesn’t provide for “reply” messages to be sent to the Special Notice
members.
If you need help, check http://www.knittinghelp.com/ How to Knit |
KnittingHelp.com for any assistance or write an email to the group for help.
For day 1 and day 2 of rows, I will post photos.

Using Lifelines will help with any project. If you aren’t sure what that is,
there is plenty of info on the Internet about it but it is basically where
you put thread or thin yarn through a row already worked, designating that
all the rows to that point are error free. You should document what row you
put the lifeline in so you have a point of reference. If you make any error
after that point, you know you are OK with the previous rows anyway.

This KAL is a Lace cloth.

.Notes: The pass first stitch of 3 stitches over last 2 stitches just means
you aren’t going to pass the “YO” stitch but start at the first stitch after
the yarn over and pass over the other 2 stitches

Level of Difficulty: Easy

Materials:

1 Skein of Cotton Yarn, #6 or #7 US Needles

Cast on: Multiple of 6 sts + Border (30 + 8= 38)

NOTES:

YO = Yarn over

Border:

Rows 1-4: Knit across.

Pattern:

Row 1: K4, *YO, K3, pass first stitch of 3 stitches over last 2
sts just worked, K3; repeat from *, end K4.

Row 2: K4, P30, K4.

Row 3: Knit across.

Row 4: K4, P30, K4.

Row 5: Knit across.

Row 6: K4, P30, K4.

Okay, it just means you don’t do anything to the YO. You take the first knit stitch (of the k3) and pass it over the other two knit stitches you just did. This will involve the last 3 stitches on your needle. I just tried it and it worked out and I ended up with the correct number of stitches.

Ok I see what you mean. I just couldn’t get my head wrapped around it.
Thank you so much,
Yvonne

You’re welcome. It really wasn’t written all that clearly. I read it a couple times and then tried it to make sure. It wasn’t just you. :wink:
