Don't understand the directions.

I don’t understand the directions for this pattern. Am making a cardigan but find these directions confusing for the left front,

Armhole and neck shaping: Next row (RS)K 2, ssk, k to last 11 sts, k2tog, k 1, M1 as if to knit, (p1, k1) 4 times. Repeat dec at beg of every other row for armhole 9 (10, 10, 10) times more. Repeat dec at placket edge every 4th row 6 (6, 7, 7) times more. Repeat increase after last “k 1” before placket every other row 15 times more, alternating M1 in knit or purl to keep in pat

Can anyone help?

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
Call this row, row 1:
(RS)K 2, ssk, k to last 11 sts, k2tog, k 1, M1 as if to knit, (p1, k1) 4x
For the small size, work the ssk dec on rows 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19.
Work the k2tog dec on rows 1,5,9,13,17,21,25.
Make the M1 inc. on rows 1,3,5,7,etc until you’ve increased 16 times total. These increases should be taken into the p1, k1 pattern repeats so increase as a knit or a purl.

Thanks! That’s what I finally figured out. Wrote it all out.
