Need help on reading Caron Simply Soft Lacy Pattern
Hi, I need help in reading the instruction for Lacy Tank knitting pattern for Caron Simply Soft, hope that someone can help me. I am using the same yarn and needle, but cannot figure out how to work on row 3 for the Lacy Rib. In row 2, after dropping the remaining YO, there is another new Yo add on, but when I knit row 3, the instruction did not mention how to deal with that YO, just "knit slipped St, inserting needle under both yarn-over strands and into st, k3", I am so confused about that, I have been thinking whether to knit all the YO with S1 together, but it does not work. If anyone know that, please kindly advise me. Thank you so much.

Lacy Rib (multiple of 4 sts + 3)

Note: The yarn-overs in this Stitch pattern provide the extra yarn needed to produce the 'eyelets' on each side of the slipped st, and to allow the slipped st to become elongated as it is slipped; they are not worked as sts. On Rows 3 and 6 the yarn-over strands are incorporated into the slipped st as it is worked.

Row 1 (RS): K3, * yo, slip 1, yo, k3; repeat from * across.

Row 2: P3, * yo, slip [first yo and next st, drop remaining yo], yo, p3; repeat from * across.

Row 3: K3, knit slipped st, inserting needle under both yarn-over strands and into st, k3; repeat from * across.

Row 4: P3, * yo, slip1, yo, p3; repeat from * across.

Row 5: K3, yo, slip [first yo and next st, drop remaining yo], yo, k3; repeat from * across.

Row 6: P3, purl slipped st, inserting needle under both yarn-over strands and into st, p3; repeat from * across.

Repeat Rows 1 6 for Lace Rib.

Hi and welcome to KH!
The note helps. The yo aren't ever treated as stitches. For row 3. the yo is incorporated into the slipped stitch. So knit the slipped stitch with the yo. Knit the two sts together just as if it were a k2tog (the same will happen on row 6 but it'll be like a purl2tog. It's not so easy to do row 3 but the key seems to be in doing the yarn overs and keeping them in place next to the slipped stitch.

It sounds a little like how you do brioche, maybe the tutorials on that site will help.

Need help on reading Caron Simply Soft Lacy Pattern
Thank you so much for your help, but there are 1yo, 1 slip stitch and 2yo, should I knit them all together in one stitch?

Yes, knit them all together on row 3. I'm not sure why the pattern says both yo but you need to knit all 4 loops together to maintain the stitch number.

Thank you so much again, however, I had knit them all together, bit it doesn't look like eyelet knitting pattern as the pictures show in the pattern.

Let's look at the instructions again. There isn't a yo2, one of the regular YOS is dropped off the needle.

"Row 2: P3, * yo, slip [first yo and next st, drop remaining yo], yo, p3; repeat from * across."

You drop one of the YOs. The first one and the next stitch are slipped together, then drop the next yo. YO again and p3.

Row 3: K3, knit slipped st, inserting needle under both yarn-over strands and into st, k3; repeat from * across."

Knit the yo and the slipped stitch together. This makes the stitch count the same as you started with.

I think it's a wording problem. The 'both' is referring to the yo and slipped stitch - the strands of 'both of them'. It could be written to say "both strands of the yarn-over and the st".
