Slk -OOPS! that should be Ssk- and k2tog are decreases; yo is an increase that doesn't use an existing stitch. You have an increase (yo) for each decrease (ssk or k2tog) so your stitch count doesn't change. To do a yo wrap the yarn as if you were knitting a stitch w/o putting the needle into a stitch first. You can find a video for doing a yo in the increases section of Free Videos I believe.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
