Skills Used

  • Cast On
  • Knit
  • Purl
  • YO (yarn over)
  • PSO (pass stitch over)
  • Bind Off

YO = yarn over = Bring the yarn forward between the needles, then back over the top of the right needle, so that it is now in the correct position to knit the next stitch. This is a way of increasing stitches, and create a hole in the fabric. They are usually paired with decrease in lace patterns (YO)

    Pass 1st st. over = pass first stitch over = This is the corresponding decrease in this pattern, where you will pass the stitch created by the yarn over, over the two stitches that are worked immediately after the yarn over. Using your left needle, lift the YO over the two stitches you just knit, and off the needle. (Pass 1st st. over)

      With 2 strands of yarn held together, cast on 80 stitches

      • Row 1: *YO, K2, Pass 1st st. over; repeat from * across
      • Row 2: Purl
      • Repeat rows 1 & 2 until your cloth measure approx 3′
      • Bind off, securing the last stitch.
      • Trim yarn and weave in all ends.
