Mystery Scarf KAL:  Today is all about yarnovers and how to make them.  How a yarnover is created depends on two things:  what kind of stitch (a knit or a purl) comes BEFORE the yarnover AND what kind of stitch (a knit or a purl) comes AFTER the yarnover.  There are four possible combinations.

1> from a K     MAKE YO      to a K  =so knit the stitch just before you make the yarnover, bring the yarn forward BETWEEN YOUR NEEDLES and over the right-hand needle.  That’s it for this one.  EASY!

2>from a K     MAKE YO     to a P  =so knit the stitch just before you make the yarnover, bring the yarn forward BETWEEN YOUR NEEDLES, over the right-hand needle AND FORWARD BETWEEN YOUR NEEDLES one more time so your yarn is in position to purl the next stitch.

3>from a P     MAKE YO     to a K  =so purl the stitch just before you make the yarnover, bring the yarn OVER the right-hand needle and knit the next stitch…knitting the next stitch after bringing the yarn over the needle creates the eyelet a yo makes.

4>from a P     MAKE YO     to a P  =so purl the stitch just before you make the yarnover, bring the yarn OVER the right-hand needle AND THEN FORWARD BETWEEN THE TWO NEEDLES so your yarn is in position to purl the next stitch.
