YO...what does this mean in this pattern?
This pattern is pretty straight forward, but I'm not sure what YO means in this case. I assume it has something to do with increasing, but it's not the way I am familiar with. which needle to I YO and how do I do it? I played around a bit, but it doesn't look right. Thanks for your help!

For the record...I am new at this, but I do know the basics of casting on, knitting, purling, increase and decrease and binding off.

yo stands for Yarn Over and it is an increase.

When you are doing your stitches in knit, the yarn is in the back, right? When you yo as you are doing knit, you put the yarn to the front, between the needles as if you are going to purl. When you knit the next stitch, the yarn gets wrapped around the needle and creates an extra stitch.

If the yo occurs on a purl row, you put the yarn in back and then purl the next stitch.
