I’m working on a hat and the YO stitch is called for. The only time I’ve used YO in the past was in between knitting stitches, so I bring the yarn forward (as if I was going to purl), knit, and wrap the yarn around.
However, this pattern calls for YO followed by p2tog. I’m just not sure how to YO - I guess I have to wrap the yarn around the needle one full time, and then proceed to purl? Because obviously if I just bring the yarn forward as if to purl and then purl, it won’t create an extra stitch.
Oh - and same thing (but the opposite), if the pattern calls for: p2tog, YO, k2tog?
