The pattern found in a dictionary of knitting stitches reads as follows:
Knitting Stitch Patterns
Pillar Openwork

Multiple of 3 + 2
Row 1 (RS): k1, *yo, sl1, k2, psso the two knit sts over; rep from *, end k1
Row 2:

This is a pretty simple instruction and I followed it easily enough...oe so I thought. Here is what I have, what did I do wrong

Correction.

R. 2 should read P.

How are you doing your YOs? I don't see any holes/eyelets. Is this it?

Yep I thought so too.

www.newstitchaday.com/pillar-openwork-lace-stitch has a nice, short video of this stitch being done. The slip stitch is worked "as if to purl," with the working yarn in front. Also.....from your pic, i am wondering if after the slip stitch...are you knitting the next 2 stitches together? That would be incorrect...you will slip a stitch; knit 1, knit 1; pass the sl stitch over the last two stitches worked..........this will decrease your count by one - which the yarn over makes up for.

You just forgot to stop. If you want it for a sleeve, k2tog on one side and M1 before the final st on the other side. This way you will have straight sides and not a parallelogram.

This looks like my piece only mine has gone sideways.

My pattern did not include the, slip one as to purl, that would make a difference I think.

I will frog and try this, 'k2tog on one side and M1 before the final st on the other side.'

Thanks for all your tips, I'm not giving up.

When the decrease is always worked in the same direction the work will always be on the bias. The make the work straight you have to dec. to the left on one row and dec. to the right on the next dec. row.
