   -  skp (slip 1, knit 1, pass slip st over) Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch – 1 st decreased.
 
   -  Yo (yarn over).
 
An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right hand needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.
