Yarn overs

This involves taking the yarn over the right needle to create a lace hole. Depending on the next stitch, the pattern will instruct you to bring the yarn forward (yf) or take the yarn back (yb) so that you have to wrap the yarn over the needle to make the next stitch, thereby creating the hole.

1 This example shows a yarn over between 2 knit stitches. Instead of knitting the second stitch with the yarn at the back of the work in the usual way, the yarn was brought forward between the needles to the front of the work, then wrapped over the right needle to knit the stitch.

2 This yarn over is between 2 purl stitches. Instead of purling the second stitch with the yarn at the front of the work in the usual way, the yarn was taken between the needles to the back of the work, then wrapped over the right needle to purl the stitch.
