Pattern Help

My problem is described below— Many many thanks in advance for any insights here —

9 stitches

Row 1: purl row
row 2: (take down to 6) ssk, sssk, yo, yo, k2tog, k2tog
row 3: purl row

how do I purl 2 stitches created by “yo, yo”

You could purl as usual and then purl through the back loop. Are there any directions about working the double yarn over at the beginning of the pattern?

On the row after a double YO, you usually p1 k1, or p1 ptbl.
