Help with lace pattern

Need a little help with a lace pattern.

R1: K6, *yo, sl 1, K2tog, psso, yo, k5: rep from *
R2: K3, purl across to last st, end k3.

I understand how to do these rows, but question is, when I start on the K3 purl row I run across 2 stitches that seem to be crisscrossed, I guess from the yo. My question is, do I treat these are 2 separate stitches and purl into each of them separately or treat as 1 stitch and purl into both at the same time? I hope this makes sense. I want to be sure I am doing this correctly before i get too far into it.


[COLOR=purple]They are 2 stitches. One from the K2tog, psso and a yo. Kinda run your thumb over the stitiches to seperate them.[/COLOR]

Thank you so much. That is what I had done but did not want to get too far into this and find I was wrong. Whew!
