I am doing a pattern that requires a k1 long stitch. I understand how to do it. On the previous row you do k2tog, then ssk and then knit 4. On the k1 long row it says to do a knit stitch in the row below and between the k2tog and ssk. I can do that and then knit in the k2tog and ssk. Then finally do another knit stitch in the row below and between the k2tog and ssk. So basically you have 4 stitches. My problem is doing the second long stitch because I can't keep the yarn on my needle to pull it through. I thought about using a crochet hook to grab the yarn, pull it through, and put over my needle. But I didn't know if that would affect the look of my project as it basically creates a little eyelet. Is there a trick to doing it? Can I use a different stitch? I don't have to have the eyelet pattern. But I want it to work out the same as far as stitch count and size. Thanks for any help.

You can use a crochet hook, no problem.

Just make sure you position the "legs" of the stitch you create facing the correct way.

This video shows how to do a K1 long stitch, and it should not matter how you pull the yarn through the hole.

The stitch does leave a small hole in the work

Do you have a link to the pattern you're working on?

Lots of people use a crochet hook to help with bobbles while knitting or to pick up and reknit a dropped stitch. It is a good tool.

I don't know if it goes by another name or not. I had a bit of trouble finding anything on google. But it is a pretty stitch and not that hard other than keeping that yarn on my needle for the final long stitch. Especially since this is a baby set and I am using fingering yarn to start with.

Thank you. I will go back to that method. Otherwise I just can't keep that yarn on my needle to pull it back through. It is a baby set and I am using fingering yarn. Not a good combination for me at my age. Thank you

This was the problem I think when I tried it. Now that I am getting to know what the stitch should look like, I hope I can figure out how to pull it through so it look right.
Thank you

I will take a look at that youtube. I found a couple that I watched to figure it out. It is a really pretty stitch.
Here is a link to the pattern. It is on Ravelry. If I am not supposed to share this please let me know and I will remove it. It is a paid pattern and the one I have looked for so long. I knew what I wanted to make but couldn't find it until this pattern. I hope it turns out good.

I learned crochet before I learned knitting. I taught myself to knit using an insert from a magazine my mom had using 2 pencil. Boy was that yarn dirty. But my mom said she couldn't afford to buy knitting needles especially if I never learned to knit. This was long before the internet and youtube. But when I showed her that I could do it, she bought me a pair of knitting needles. I still have those needles after about 45 years. I think I still have the insert too. So I use the crochet hoot to pick up dropped stitches all the time and to rip back when I make a mistake several rows down. So for I have not tried bobbles. Thank you for your help.

Thanks for posting the pattern link, it's so pretty
Posting a link to any pattern is fine, or even just a few rows from a 'paid' pattern if you need help.

You're instincts are correct. We use whatever works sometimes. Please show us when you're done. It's a very pretty pattern.
