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.
I thought I was a little crazy, but I actually gave up trying to figure out this pattern. Did anyone's response actually help? I love the look, but am tired of trying to get through row three . . .

The only way I could get this pattern to work was by catching the yarn overs as I knit or purled the slip stitch. It also helped to mark the slip stitch so that it continued up the tank in a line.
I think it's telling that the Ravelry page for this pattern has NO projects.

Thank you. It would be better if they worded it " knit both slipped stiches and both yarn overs together" looks like knit 4tog . . .
Oh well, at least I'm making some progress now.
