Can anyone help me?

Hi, I am knitting a tea cosy.
But I am wondering what this means:

Beg with P row & SS 5 rows (k3, k2tog) × 2 K 1 (k2tog, k2) × 2

Can anyone help me?

Is this all on the same line? Generally, SS means stocking stitch without shaping (in this case, it probably should be SS 5 rows, then begin shaping on the 6th row).
Or is it the shaping itself you need help with?

Hi, I don 't know if it is all on the same line.

The pattern before is this: CO 11 sts
K 1 row
P 1 row
K1 (m1, k1) to end of row = 21

And then the section I don 't understand:
Beg with a P row & SS 5 rows
(k3, k2tog) × 2, K 1, (k2tog, k3)

I am just a starter with knitting, so I don 't know many things.

Ah, I think you are meant to do 5 stocking stitch rows (purl and knit rows alternately), then (k3, k2tog) × 2, K 1, (k2tog, k3) on the 6th row. To do this, k3, k2tog k3, k2tog, k1, k2tog, k3, k2tog, k3. The instructions in brackets are repeated the indicated number of times before doing the next part.
