Yarn overs can be created going in two different directions. One direction will give you a slightly longer length of yarn that may be easier to see.

The shorter length would be created by purling your stitch, then taking your yarn back OVER the needle and then bringing it to the front between the needles. The longer length would be created by purling your stitch, taking your yarn back between the needs and bringing it forward over the needle. Maybe by doing a longer yarn over it will be easier for you to see and work it as a stitch. This will also create a larger decorative "hole" in your knitting.
