I am making a child's shrug and am up to the decrease row. After that row the instructions call for "Rib as Established. Do I just continue the rib pattern as it was before the decrease or do I follow the knit and purl stitches as they are presented. Hope I'm clear on this.
Thanks.

You follow the knits and purls as presented. That is the established rib before increases or decreases.

You must be knitting the same shrug as me. I, too, am having problems understanding "rib as established."

This is my problem:

Rib to marker, *P1, yo, P1, K2* to 2 sts. before marker, etc.

I don't know what to do with that yo. Do I just slip it over to left needle, or knit it?

Would appreciate your help.

When you are purling and come to a yo, you have to wrap the yarn around the needle. Let me think--it would be counter-clockwise. That would be the needle in your right hand or the working needle as it is sometimes called. Then you do your next purl. You have created a stitch with the yo.

thanks so much for taking your time to help me.
I can easily do a P1, yo, P1, sequence.
My problem is the next row that says, Rib as established.

I think that means to do that row exactly as the preceding row, but I don't know what to do with the yo stitch.

What's bad about my needing help, is that I knitted this same shrug for my great-granddaughter for christmas. Now I can't seem to get it right. I found the pattern online under Child's Ballet Shrug in Cotton Twirl.

I will say I have a lot of patience because I have ripped out 3 and 4 rows more than once.

it seems my brain just isn't computing . ha

If the rib is kl, pl, on the next row that yarn over stitch would be a purl. Because, on the return (second) row, what you purled on the previous row would now be knitted, and that new stitch, which is in between those two stitches would have to be a knit. Does this make sense? In other words, the yarn over stitch has now been incorporated into the rib.

Yes, that makes sense. I understand how you explained it. I will work on this tomorrow and let you know.
Thank you so much for your help.
