I’m very new to knitting and I’ve just started toe up socks.
I’m beginning the set up row which reads as follows:
after the marker:k2,YOP,k1 - this becomes needle one.
My problem is the YOP. Any help greatly appreciated.


I’m new too but i think it means yarn over pearl.?

I have looked at all the master knitting abbreviations lists, and I can’t find YOP anywhere. There are three possiblities:

Yarn over purl like redmom said

Yarn over purlwise, where you wrap it up over as if to purl

They made a mistake, and it should say YON which is yarn over needle, which the same as yarn over. You may want to check with the pattern company for any errata.

Hope this helps.
