I am trying my first attempt at a baby blanket and want to make sure I understand this pattern before I start....

I'm working on the Bernat Baby Coordinates Sweet Stripes (Purple Knit Blanket), which some of you may be familiar with--it's from the Bernat website.

Here is what the pattern says:

Cast on 4 sts. Do not join.Working back and forth across needle in rows, proceed as follows:

1st row: (WS). Knit.
2nd row: (Inc row). K2. yfwd. Knit to end of row.
Rep last row until there are 190 sts.

My question is, when I get to row 2, and after I K2, do I knit one stitch with yfwd, and then knit to the end of the row like normal? Or do I knit every stitch after my original K2, with yfwd?  Tongue

I believe that they mean for you to do a Yarn Over (different language/terminaology) which involves bringing the yarn forward then over the needle and to the back again so it is ready for the next knit stitch. There is a video on knittinghelp.com all the way down at the bottom of the page.

You only do the yarn over (yarn forward) after the K2 not after each knit stitch.
