I am knitting a lacey shawl. It calls for a yo before a purl stitch. I know how to do this,but am getting a lot of mistakes with too many stitches,or not enough. Is there something else I can do to achieve the same results.

You just do the yarn over in the opposite direction. It will come naturally with practice.

It's pretty easy once you do this...bring the yarn forward as to purl, then wrap that around the needle and bring it forward again.

That's what I do, just make sure your tension is even
