K2 and then repeat (yo, k1, k3tog, k1, yo, k2) 2 times. There are 7 sts in the parens times 2 repeats and then the initialy k2 =16.
Don't count the yo's as a stitch until you finish the row.

You don't knit a stitch as part of the yo, it's just a wrap around the needle -

k2 - uses 2, 2 sts on R needle
* yo - uses 0, 3 sts on r needle
k 1 - uses 1, 4 sts
k3 tog - uses 3, 5 sts on needle
k1 - uses 1, 6 sts on needle
yo - uses 0, 7 sts on needle
k2 * - uses 2, 9 sts on needle
then repeat from * to * and that's 7 more which uses 16 and leaves you with 16.
