CO: Cast on
RS: Right side
WS: Wrong side
yo: Yarn over
s2kp2: Slip 2 stitches at once, knitwise, knit the next, pass the 2 over.
How to knit Textured Eyelets stitch pattern
CO multiples of 4 + 1 (i.e.: 8 + 1; 12 + 1; 16 + 1; 20 + 1…).
The swatch on the pics has 25 stitches (4 * 6 = 24 + 1 = 25).
Rows 1 and 3: *K1, p3*. Repeat from * to * ending with K1.
Row 2 and all WS rows: Purl across.
Row 5: *K1, yo, s2kp2, yo*. Repeat from * to * ending with K1.
Row 6: Purl across.
These 6 rows create the pattern, repeat them until you get to the desired length.
That’s how the wrong side of the work looks like:
