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.
