Video: YO – Yarnover

YO - Yarn Over
YO - Yarn Over

This simple increase makes a lacy-looking hole in your work, so only use it if you want a hole. Increases by 1 stitch.

Not incidentally, the yarnover, in combination with Knit 2 Together, is the basis of all lace patterns.

Abbreviation: YO


  1. With yarn in back*, loop the yarn once around your right-hand needle clockwise.

*If you are knitting, your yarn will be in the back when you start the increase. If you are purling, the yarn will be in the front. Either way, the yarnover will be correct if you make one full wrap around your right-hand needle and return the yarn to where it started from.
