So this is the pattern I'm trying to do: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTfrill.html

And I was making my guage and had a question.
(In the body) when I get to K3, *YO twice, k2tog, k3. Rep from * across row. I can do this row fine, but the next row is K5, *drop 1 loop off needle, YO twice, k2tog, k3. Rep from * to last st, end with k1. When I'm knitting back across on this row and come to the place where I had previously done the yarn over, I knit the first one but then the loop is weird to knit on it again (b/c it was yarn over twice, so it made 2 loops).

I thought that it would have me knit the first and the drop 1 loop off needle would fit to the other half of the yo, but in my guage it didn't.

Is this b/c I didn't do the full 152 co, so I just didn't have it aligned correctly or... am I just confused? Did any of that make sense??

I think you're a bit misaligned.  
the K5 at the beginning of that second row should all be regular stitches.  (you shouldn't have gotten to the YO yet)
then you drop the *first* loop of the YO, and knit the *second* loop together with a regular stitch for the k2tog
remember the end of the first row was k2tog, k3, k1 - > that adds up to 5 regular stitches at the end of that row.
I hope that makes sense!

That makes total sense. The math geek that I am should have been able to figure this out, but... I'm also a dork, so...

Thanks!!
