Yarn overs in a chart
When there is a yarn over in a chart, does that mean you yarn over and then knit the next stitch? I don't usually like to use charts because it's easier for me to knit by the written directions, but I might start a lace project and use a chart because the written instructions aren't available.

A YO in a chart is just the YO, not the knit stitch after it. Just count bringing the yarn forward as the YO, and it will be created when you work the next stitch, which will have a box of its own.

The YO in the chart will be represented as a new stitch so you will do the YO (it's usually a little circle)then do whatever the next little box tells you to do, could be a K or a P or a decrease! But no, don't do the YO and then automatically knit.

Everyone is correct! Sometimes a YO is followed by a k2tog, sometimes a knit.. it can vary!

A yarnover can be followed by a p2tog also, and that's not all. I just had a deja vu of Bubba from Forrest Gump reciting all the ways that shrimp can be prepared.
