Okay, this may seem pretty stupid, but for the life of me, I can't figure out yarn-overs. I just can't figure them out. What the heck am I supposed to do? From little video clips I've seen, it looks like I'm just setting up to knit, or purl, a stitch, and then . . . what? What do I do from where? Do I continue with the stitch? If so, how the heck does that make it different from a normal stitch?

Very confused . . . >_<

You basically wrap the yarn around the needle. So if your last stitch was a knit stitch and the instructions say to yo, just bring the yarn forward between the needle and back around the right needle so it's in back again. If you've just done a purl (so the yarn is in front) bring the yarn to the back by going around the right needle, and forward by bringing it between the two needles.

The end result is an extra stitch.

That's it? That's truly it?

Wow, that's nothing like the way I read it in a knitting book, or on a few sites. However, this time it sounds like it'll actually work!

Thank you so much!  Kiss

Thankee!

If you're curious at all, http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTbranchingout.html is the project I'm attempting. Since you explained yarn-over to me properly, I'm confident that I'll be able to get this done in good time.

I'm quite excited. This is my first lace project.
