Need help with lace pattern
OMG, I am like the information thief on here. DS's mitten's turned out just fine by the way. I am making the yoga bag on page 169 in the stich and bitch nation book for my mom for x-mass. I am having a heck of a time trying to figure out the pattern. It reads like this

K2, *yo, sl1, K2tog, psso, yo, k1; repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2.

I had to cast on 80 stiches and I double counted several times and have torn it out and retired it at lest 3 times. Getting real tired of re-casting on those 80 stiches. Every time I come up the end in the middle of the pattern.

This is how I have read it

k2, *k1, yarn forward, k1, slip one, k2tog, skp, k1, yarn forward, k1, k1*

I have tried it this way too

K2, *yf, sl1, K2tog, skp, yf, k1*

I am really ready to give up on this pattern and find an easier one on the net. Any one know a really easy lace pattern if I can't get this? There are 4 variations of this row in this pattern.

I think you are mixing up your yarn overs. All a yarn over (yo) is, is bringing your yarn to the front and returning it to the back over the right needle. It is not associated with a knit stitch at all, unless that happens to be the stitch before or after. A yarn over is simply bringing the yarn over the right needle.

So your pattern line is:
K2, *yo, sl1, K2tog, psso, yo, k1; repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2.

It should look like this:

K2
*bring yarn to front and return to back over the right needle (yo)
slip 1 stitch
k2tog
pass the slipped stitch over the K2tog and off the needle
bring yarn to front and return to back over the right needle (yo)
K1

Repeat from * until you have 2 stitches left. When 2 stitches remain you should have completed a full repeat of what's after the *. End with a K2.
