So I'm trying to make my first wearable piece, and the pattern calls for a yo, then place marker. But the row after that, I'm supposed to knit those stitches, and I'm confused about where to place the marker, since it's right in the middle of the yarn over. Any help would be appreciated!

The marker goes on the needle, not the stitch, so when you get to it on the following rows, you just slip it from the left needle to the right one.

I know, but you yo, then place marker, so when you knit the next stitch, the yo goes right over the stitch. When you knit the next row, you have to knit the yarn over, which goes right over the marker. So I'm wondering do I knit the yo first, and then slide the marker, or slide the marker and then knit the yo?

It's kind of hard to explain without pictures (at least to me, since I'm a visual person). Sorry Sad

Also, has anyone knit the Cloud Bolero before?

A YO is just the act of moving the yarn.  You don't knit anything afterwards.  I want to say that this is a regional difference in the meaning of the term, but in every pattern I've ever seen, a YO is simply that...moving the yarn around, without doing anything to any existing stitches.

You can keep that yo from slipping over the next stitch in the pattern as you make it by putting a finger on it. Make the YO, put the marker on, and work the next st. The marker should stay next to the knit st, but they tend to wander and slip under the YO, so you have to watch it on the next row. The next row, you knit the single stitch, slip the marker then knit the YO.

Aislynn is right - a YO is just wrapping the yarn around the needle, then you do the next stitchin the pattern which is a knit 1. So you don't wrap the yarn, knit 1, knit 1, just wrap the yarn.
