I love the look of the Foxglove pattern.
I would love some help with the stitch reverse yarn over. I am having difficulty following this video.
Can I have some assistance as I would love to be able to learn this beautiful stitch.
Thank you.

Hi Noeleen. How can I help you? Do want another video? Reverse yarn over is similar to yarn over stitch but done in opposite direction. Let me know how can I help you

Your knit stitch looks backwards to me so to do your pt I can’t follow the photos or the video

It looks like there are now 3 stitches for 1. Is that right ??

Hi Carolynn. yes it is 3 sts (k1, ryo, k1) for 1. it does not matter how your knit stitch looks just make 3 from 1
