There will always be only 9 sts in the lace panel. It's possible the markers slid under YOs, but there shouldn't be any YOs next to the markers in the first place.
The first row - K1. yo. K1. K2tog. P1. Sl1. K1. psso. K1. yo. K1. - takes 9 sts and ends with 9 sts. Look on row 1 and name the sts in the panel to see that you didn't do too many YOs or forget a dec. You should be able to read them as: knit yo knit dec purl dec knit yo k and that will be 9 sts.
