Help with a row in pattern

Help with a row in pattern
The pattern I’m using is “Cold Day in the Sun” found on I don’t have the exact link any more, as I’m using the print out. It’s a cloak and is done in two pieces that will need to be stitched together. The row in particular that I am on is the eyelet row and goes as follows : k2, *K2tog, yo, k6 ; repeat from *6Xs, k2tog yo, k2

Help? I can’t figure out exactly what I’m repeating and where the repetition stops.

You should repeat 6 times, the instructions between the asterisks:
k2tog, yo k6.
Do this until there are 4sts left on the left hand needle and then follow the final directions:
k2tog, yo, k2.
