Yes, the yarn over is made by laying the yarn across the right needle from front to back. The k2tog keeps the stitch count unchanged. The reason for the yo is to give you a small loop at the edge. After you finish the edging shown on charts A and B you'll pick up stitches for the main body of the shawl in the loops, 4 loops from each repeat of chart A and 6 from chart B repeats plus a few more.
"Triangle section. With circular needle and RS of Edging facing, pick up and knit 1 stitch into each yarn over 138 {168} times."
Give it a try on a small garter stitch swatch and you'll see the loop.
Spectacular shawl pattern! Enjoy knitting it.
