You'll YO two times, then k4, YO two times, k4 repeatedly across your row. YO are an action to add a stitch, not a worked stitch, and are usually paired with a decrease to keep stitch count even. Seeing your next row may help the experts figure out what's going on here since there's no decrease.

Happy knitting!
