Knitting "yarn over"

Hello everyone, I have recently joined and am fairly new to knitting.
I have started knitting this very pretty pattern but, after doing the first yo row, I have become confused. How do I knit the following row (row 6)? I knitted every stitch, including each yo stitch and have ended up with 20 extra stitches. Help!

Hi and welcome!

Are you doing on the k2tog? A YO is an increase and k2tog is a decrease. Based on my calculations of row 5 it should leave you with the same number of stitches you cast on. My guess is you aren’t doing all the k2tog. Check to see that you have the same number of stitches on that row.

Thank you so much. I looked at the pattern again and I see now. Haha, thanks for your help.
