How to knit lace stitch

You only need to know a couple of techniques to be able to start knitting lace. The patterns are usually the result of combining yarn overs (YO) and decreases = knitting 2 stitches together (K2 tog). You get an eyelet hole when you work a yarn over (YO) and increase one stitch. When you knit 2 stitches together, decrease this additional stitch.
