I have this really cool hat pattern but greatly confused by instructions that want you to inc 2 sts in 1 st, so you end up with 3 sts. I know how to inc, but this is something new. I tried YO but the pic doesn't show the "hole" that a YO creates. Any suggestions?

The hat I'm working on is called a "jibber" or a skating hat. It was popular in the 50's and early 60's. I spent 4 hrs. online trying to find more than one pattern. Finally found one on a vintage knitting pattern site. If you ever run across one, send it my way!!!!

K, yo, k in the same stitch is a common way to make 3 from 1. working in the back loop of the yo on the next row/round closes the hole. If you haven't tried it you might want to as it's easier, at least for me, than k,p,k in the same stitch. When all is said and done whatever method you like and gives the desired result is the right way to do it.
