Hi all

I’ve just taken up knitting again after many many years. I thought I’d select a pattern aimed at beginners but which had a bit of detail and challenge .

I’m stuck on row one

Next row (RS): k1, sl1 wyif, k1, p2, pm, [(k2, p2, k2, p4) twice, pm] 3 times, (k2, p2) twice, sl1 wyif, k1, sl1 wyi.

It’s the bit in brackets [(k2,p2, k2 ,p4 )twice ,pm] 3 times ,

Does this mean I knit this twice or three times . I just can not figure this out .

Any help gratefully received
