Hi and welcome!
When you drop the double yo on round 2 you'll find that there is extra yarn in the slip stitch which is from the double yarn over. Pull up on that slipped stitch a bit (don't pull it tightly) to take up the slack yarn. I think by the time you've finished the row or even the next few rows, you'll see the effect of the pulled stitch. Do you have a pattern link or pattern name? It would be fun for us to see what the pattern looks like.

big bravo color loop scarf
Hi! I am a beginner and I thought I chose something rather easy. I think I was wrong. I might even be knitting the same scarf as member speed1. Anyway, after knitting the 6th row: K1, 2 yo, K1 then repeat... I am now at the 7th row and the instructions read: K1, let yo slide off the needle, sl1p wyib, pulling st up. I understand the instructions, but when I drop the yo and sl 1p wyib, I'm at the yo stitches again but I'm supposed to knit 1. How can I knit one if I have the two yarn overs as the next stitches? I am so frustrated!
best regards from norther germany

Welcome to Knitting Help!
Hmm, it might be that you knit into the next yarn over (it's essentially one big yarn over), creating a hole or large eyelet. Can you give us a link to the pattern or a pattern name? Even if we can only see a photo of the scarf, it may help.

When you do the repeat in round 6, you'll have
k1, drop 2 yo's, slip st, k1,drop yo's, slip st, etc.
On round 7, knit 1 into the knit stitch, slip the slip stitch, knit into the next knit stitch, slip the next st.
Since both yarn overs were dropped in round 6 you start round 7 with knit st-slipped st-knit st-slip st etc., no yo's to work into. You're working rounds on this, not back and forth in rows.
