What is the name of your pattern?
This video is a bit dark but close up and clearly demonstrates the pattern stitch.

The slipped stitch (decrease) becomes a horizontal bar across the next knit stitch and YO (increase) as shown in the video image that @salmonmac shared above. The stitch count remains the same.

Please note: If you have any stitch markers, especially the end of round marker, they will migrate one stitch to the left (the yarn over inc.) With each row unless you adjust them.


Thank you so much for responding. I have just knitted my first beanie with this stitch. Once I watched the video I could not believe how easy it was.
