Yo knitting

my pattern calls for one row of k3, yo across to get 184 sts. the next row is knit with only 8 sts increased. On that 2nd row, when I get to the yo, do I knit in front or back of it? And since the first row used yo to increase should each increase row following do I have to use yo or can I knit in front & back of st.? EEK!! I’m driving myself crazy, too

How many sts do you have before the yo row?
Can you give us the exact directions for the yo row (parentheses and all) and also the exact wording for the following row?
