How to increase with a yarn over (yo)

In this DROPS video we show how you can increase with a yarn over (yo). This is an increase that creates a decorative hole.

We show the increase 2 times in the video. Halfway through the video we have turned the work and show you how to work the yo in front or back loop depending if you prefer a larger or smaller hole. When working the back loop the stitch becomes twisted and this way the hole becomes a bit smaller.
