I'm only a beginner, and I've decided to take on Sexie. haha. About 3 rows into it, I have a problem. No matter what I do it just WILL NOT come out right. I always have wayy to many stitches at the end or too little. I guess my question is...if you yo, do you knit a stitch right after it regardless of what the directions say?

Sorry, I know it's probably the dumbest question you guys ever heard, but it confusing me so much. Any help?

Sorry. I'm a bit impatient I guess. I searched, and it said the search feature was down? I think I found what I'm looking for but just to double check, you do NOT have to knit a stitch after you yo?

When I do yarn overs I move the yarn between the needles to the opposite spot that it should be.  ie, if the stitch after the yo is a knit stitch I move the yarn to the front and then knit the stitch from there.  It does the yo and the knit stitch at the same time.  If the next stitch is a purl stitch, I move the yarn to the back and purl.

I hope this makes sense.  It did in my head, I swear.  Hope it helps!

Exactly right: you do not HAVE to knit a stitch after you yo. Just do whatever the pattern calls for for the stitch after the yo. Sorry I don't have the pattern in front of me to help you further.

Trust me, despite my username, I promise I know the answer to this one!

kk, i know this is an old thread, but i figure my question fits here, so:
I am attempting Sexie from SnB (durrr).  I've started it and ripped it out several times already, for some reason the lace part just doesn't come up even for me.  I think it might be my yos. In the back of the book in the how-to section it tells me I must first knit a stich before I yo.  That said, if the pattern reads: "K2, yo" do I knit, knit, knit + yo or knit, knit, yo?
