Hi and welcome! These rows aren't supposed to decrease. They shoulf maintain the number of sts on the needle. The yfwd is a yarn forward which will result in a yarn over and an extra stitch. That will make up for the st lost in the skpo. The same is true for the yrn where you bring the yarn to the front between the needles and then around over the right needle and to the front again for the p2tog. Again the yrn will add a loop over the needle, a stitch, which will make up for the st lost in the p2tog. Take a look at these terms on the Glossary page if you want to check on how-to.
