I'm not sure how to do it, but a YO creates an eyelet so a KFB would not give the same look. Lace is ...well, lacey, so you'd want the eyelet.

This is how 'The Knitter's Bible' says to do a yo at the edge of your work:

Before a knit stitch, bring the yarn forward as if to purl, knit the first stitch bringing the yarn over the right needle as you do so.

Before a purl stitch, take the yarn back as though to knit, purl the first stitch bringing the yarn over the needle as you do so.

You can yo at the beginning--it creates a nice loopy edge.

Insert the needle, then bring the yarn up over the right needle to knit the stitch.
