The yarn will go back to do the k2tog. You are creating a lace hole and increasing 1 with the yo, decreasing 1 with the k2tog, decreasing another 1 with the passing of the slipped stitch, and then creating another hole and stitch with the second yo. You've added 2 sts and subtracted 2 sts at the same time which means your stitch count at the end of the row should be the same. It does seem pointless but for lace, that's how you knit. Mary
