A yo doesn't use a stitch, it's a wrap around the needle and becomes a stitch after you're done. The decs reduce 2 sts to 1 st. So here's how that counts out -

K1 - uses 1, leaves 1
yo - uses 0, leaves 1 st on R needle = 2 total
K1 - uses 1, leaves 1 st on R needle = 3 total
K2tog - uses 2, leaves 1 st on R needle = 4 sts total
P1 - uses 1, leaves 1 st on R needle = 5 sts total
Sl1 K1 psso - uses 2, leaves 1 st on R needle = 6 total
K1 - uses 1, leaves 1st on R needle = 7 sts total
yo - uses 0, leaves 1 st on R needle = 8 total
K1 - uses, 1, leaves 1 st on R needle = 9 total

If you're not sure about sl k psso, it's on the Decreases page.
