How do you yarn over at the end of a row?

What is a yarn over stitch in knitting?
A yarn over (referred to as “yo”) is an increase which results in a hole. The additional stitch is usually paired k2tog ( knit 2 stitches together) so that the knitted piece is always the same width. No lace pattern is without yarn overs. They are used as decorative increases or as buttonholes.
How do you increase beginning and end of a row?
One of the easiest ways to increase is at the beginning of a row. Insert the right-hand needle into the first stitch as if you were going to knit it, but before dropping the stitch off the left-hand needle use the tip of the right-hand needle to place the new stitch onto the left-hand needle.
Why am I adding stitches to my knitting?
Oftentimes, extra stitches become embedded in your knitting because the working yarn accidentally makes its way to the front of the needle. Once it’s in the front and you knit into the next stitch, a “yarn over” is created. This is basically an extra stitch. A yarn over also creates a big knitting hole.
