Making a yarn over between knit stitches

To make a yarn over you wind the yarn around the right-hand needle to make an extra loop that is worked as a stitch on the next row. To make a yarn over between knit stitches (right) bring the yarn between the tips of the needles to the front. Take the yarn over the right-hand needle to the back and knit the next stitch on the left-hand needle.
