I have just started knitting the Fayette County sweater by Martha Wissing, free on Ravelry. I am starting row 11 and have arrived at the first two YO's in the previous row. The instructions say to: "purl into front of 1st YO, purl into back of 2nd YO, p1". Can someone "talk" me through the process? When I tried this, I purled into the front as normal...at that point, do I take that stitch off the needle, or do I then come in from behind and purl the 2nd YO before taking the stitches off the needle?
I know someone can help me...please?

I assume you're working 2 stitches into a double yarnover. I would do it like knit in front and back. Purl the first stitch in front, leave it on the needle, purl through the back, slip both stitches off the needle.

I'm sorry, but the pattern is now a pay pattern, so I can't see it, but is it a top down, or bottom up? That may help
with any ideas.

I would say that's it. Sorry we can't open the pattern but the first pass you must have wound the yarn twice to create a double yarn over. I did look at the picture and see that the pattern has a large hole which would be this stitch. Beautiful sweater, could you share a photo when you are finished?
