i have a question about the drawstring bag, for the eyelet row, it says "*YO, slip 1, k2tog, pass slipped st over; repeat from *"

i have a question about the YO, do you start just from the last row, so the first thing you do is move the yarn over, or do you knit first and that's included in the YO? i tried doing this first on 4 dpn and i messed up and just tried working the eyelet row on straight needles and i knit 1 before each YO

and just to make sure, YO is just the action of moving the yarn forward, right?

Yes, a YO is the act of bringing the yarn forward so that when you knit, it crosses the needle before being stitched.  I haven't done this pattern yet, so I don't know for sure, but it seems to me that you first bring the yarn forward, slip one stitch, knit 2 together, and then leap frog the slipped stitch over the 2 stitched together, and then repeat.  I hope that helps?  Huh  Good luck!!    Cheesy

I did this patter a while back and though I don't remember exactly, I think I treated the first sequence like an actual yarn over with stitch instead of a yarn forward...otherwise I think there are too many decreases.  After that first knit 2 together, the yarn over makes a lot more sense.
If this link works, here it is laid flat so you can see how far apart the eyelets are:

Shoot, the brain is like a sieve these days...I will check the pouch and see if I can figure it out again.

Yet another cat from LMKG. Yes, I followed the directions for the bear but the ears are just not bearlike for some reason. Anyway, here's my daughter clutching the cat for dear life right after I told her the cat was meant for a baby and not for her.

Ohh, so cute!  Yeah, my 'bear' ears looked more catlike than anything else.  Nice job (and your daughter is super cute too!)



ps I keep misreading your name for "amoebababe"

After seeing the airy scarf knit by real people (it will make the perfect headscarf!) and the bears, I now need this book!!!

I'm hoping someone can help. I'm doing the Lovable Toys, and am totally stuck on the body part, where you redistribute the stitches onto two circular needles. For some reason, it just isn't making sense to me. What should it look like on the needles? There shouldn't be any twists, right? I'm so confused!
