It should work out evenly. To work k2, yo, just bring the yarn to the front between the stitches as if to purl and then knit 2 stitches. Don't count the first stitch as part of the yo.
You should end up with 14 yos. This will leave you with 44 stitches.
Check the pattern to make sure that you're not supposed to work k2tog in there to offset the increases made by the yos.
"Trust the pattern!"

Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
