Yarn Over is used to form an open increase, or, in your case, followed by a K2tog and thus creating an eyelet. You are simply creating a yarn over and then making a decrease after it to form a lace eyelet. Amy has a video for a yarn over (yarn forward) and a K2tog in the basic techniques section.

Yarn Forward can mean the same thing as a yarn over, but in other patterns, it can mean simply bring the yarn to the front of the work. Always check your pattern abbreviations to be sure, though.

So, on that row, you would:

Knit 1
Purl 1
Yarn Over
Knit 2 together
Knit 1, purl 1
Knit 1, purl 1
Knit one
Yarn over (yarn forward)
Knit 2 together
Yarn over (yarn forward)
Knit 2 together
Yarn over (yarn forward)
Knit 2 together
Yarn over (yarn forward)
Knit 2
Yarn over twice
Knit 2 together
Knit 1.

Hope that (very lengthy post) helps!
