Creating knitting stitches with a lacy effect requires you to master just a few moves!

Yarn Over (stitch increase)

The first stitch is the Yarn Over (yo), which is simply a strand of yarn laid across the right needle which creates a new stitch.

To create this:

1 – Bring the yarn to the front between the needles. If the last stitch was a purl then the yarn is already in the front.
2 – Take the yarn over the top of the right needle
3 – Bring the working yarn to where it needs to be in order to work the next stitch.

Decreases

Knit 2 Together (k2tog):

The right needle goes through both the second and first stitch on the left needle and the new loop is pulled through both stitches (creating one stitch out of two). This puts the second stitch on top of the first making the stitch look like it is slanting to the right. therefore, it is a right leaning decrease.

Slip, knit, pass stitch over (skp) and slip, slip, knit (ssk):

These are left leaning decreases. Slip knitwise (essential to avoid a crossed stitch). Both decreases produce the same result.
