New to this, please help!

Hi

I’m knitting a scarf, never followed a pattern before, and don’t understand the following : K3 *(K2tog) 3 times, (yfwd, k1) and 6 times, (K2tog) 3 times, *rep from *to *once more, K3.

Please can someone shed some light? Thank you xx

Welcome!
The parentheses tell you the individual areas to repeat and the asterisks designate alarger repeat.
For your pattern
K3
asterisk, K2tog, k2tog, k2tog
(Yfwd, k1)
(Yfwd, k1)
(Yfwd, k1)
(Yfwd, k1)
(Yfwd, k1)
(Yfwd, k1)
K2tog, k2tog,k2tog asterisk
Repeat the sequence between the asterisks
K3

Thanks! If I knit 2 together repeatedly, won’t it reduce the width of the scarf?

Yes it will reduce the number of sts, but you will get them back with all the
Yfwd’s!!

So it all evens out in the end’n
