Help with a knitting instruction

Can anyone help me with these instructions:

Yo P your next st and the next yo together

I understand yo p but I am really not clear on the rest. I would really like to knit this shawl so if anyone could please clarify please let me know.

Thank you

Jeannie

I’m assuming you did a yo on the previous row. On this row, work a yo, and then purl the next stitch together with the previous row’s yo.

It would work just as well to say yo, purl next two stitches together, but specifying that one of those is the previous row’s yo helps you to keep track, I imagine.
