The line for the pattern says * P2, [yo, ssk] 3 times, K3, [K2tog, yo] 3 times, P1;
repeat from * to last st; P1.

My question is how do you do the yo and p1?

If your problem is with making the yo before the p1, just bring the yarn to the front first... wrap your needle with the yarn, bring it to the front again and just purl...

When doing a yo before a p you have to bring the yarn over then under to the back, just the opposite of before a k, where you bring the yarn under and then over to the back. Hope this is helpful, kind of hard to explain in writing.

This is exactly right. :thumbup: Here is a video that shows how it is done: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzdot1KNYmw

Here is a great video showing how to make a YO between all different kinds of stitch combinations (k-yo-k, k-yo-p, p-yo-k, p-yo-p) using both continental/picking method and English/throwing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiWljF5zNAs

It looks like the pattern line in most feather-and-fan stitches.

when you use yarn over with a purl stitch it doesnt work so go totally around the needle

TammyK: Thank you for the links to the videos! I'm struggling with a washcloth pattern and didn't know the correct technique for the YO from the purl stitch! Talk about timely! Merci beaucoup!
