I am currently working on a lace project. I have noticed that everyone who posted lace projects have the same size holes (YOs) in their projects. My holes are different sizes. What is the best way to make perfect YO holes? Thank you in advance for your help.

Practice and good tension?

How you do a yarnover is different depending on what the stitch following the yarn over is.

That can make a difference in the size of the holes....

I have been knitting lace for years now and sometimes still I find that my yo's aren't always the same size. this often is a result of the stitches in the pattern. I use my index finger and just push it through the smaller of the yo's to open them up more. I find that my tension when knitting lace is a bit looser and there is enough give in the yarn to do this. And blocking also does wonders in opening up lace.

For some reason, when I think of a yo as yarn forward I get a more uniform result. Yarn forward appears in British patterns. There is a subtle difference and it works for me.
