This doesn´t look right....
I´m working on this shrug:

http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/mar06_openwork.html

and I´m at the point of the first set of increasing rows. The first row says to "K3, yo, then work in patt..." but the pattern is "yo, K2tog".

After trying to do exactly as they said, which meant 2 YO together ( so I just wound the yarn around the needle two times ), I worked through the second row of increase as stated, I have the correct number of stitches, but it left a "hole" in the pattern. Am I doing something wrong or leaving something out? What can I do to correct this?

I don't think you are doning anything wrong.

Normally a yo does leave a whole, this will be part of the pattern.

Yes..as ritaw suggests..that hole is intended. When you look at the link and click on the smaller image and enlarge you can see the holes or spaces that you are creating.

They're using the yo as an increase, so you probably could do a m1 there instead.

I just went into the "Basic Techniques" here on KH, and I¨m thinking that a YO and M1 are the same thing ( I didn´t watch the video, with my dial-up I can´t always do that... ) But I think the problem is that I have 2 YO´s in a row in the first increase row, and the second row has a YO followed by a K1. could that be it?

A m1 and yo are not made the same, though both are increases. For the m1 you lift up the yarn between two stitches and knit it through the back loop, causing it to be twisted so it doesn't leave a hole, or not much of one compared to a YO. So on that first inc row, do another inc (you could try kfb, the bar increase) instead of the yo.

So then would I do the K3, kfb and then the YO with the pattern?

Thanks Sue!
