How to Make a Yarn Over
Stitches | 1 min read time
A yarn over is used to increase the number of stitches on your needle.
Some patterns may ask you to decrease after making a yarn over to create a lace pattern without changing the total number of stitches in your row.
Follow your pattern until you are ready to yarn over.
Instead of inserting your needle into the next stitch, wrap your yarn under and around your right-hand needle.
Bring the yarn over the top of the needle and hold it at the back of your work.
Work your next stitch as normal.
In your next row, work all the stitches as normal. The stitch worked into the yarn over will now create a lace-like hole.
Now you can make a Yarn Over!
