    Thank you Very Much. As an older knitter starting in 1946 (5 yrs. old) I am Always looking for new ideas to knit. I knit from the picture, not needing a printed pattern. I knit morn., noon, and night, – whenever I’m not eating!

    The double yarn over in row 8 of the diamond eyelet stitch sounds difficult to me, a novice knitter. The PFB part I understand, but pfb into double yarn over?? Any way that you could explain that to me?

      The double yarn over is simply a way of measuring out the yarn that makes that central eyelet a little bigger than its neighbors. It is flanked with a decrease on each side, and it makes two loops around the needle, so there is no change in the stitch count.
      On the following row, you work two stitches into this double yarn over by purling into the front and back of it. You begin by purling normally into the first loop of the double yarn over, dropping that loop off the needle. Then you purl through back loop into the second loop of the double yarn over. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GIpzQRn37o

      The pfb into the double yarn over does not increase the stitch count. Two loops on the needle from the double yarn over are worked as two purl stitches on the following row.
