I am making a bear by Debbie bliss. Imam not doing something right. It says (kfb, k6, kfb) 4 times. To end up with 40sts from 32

So I knit in the front and back of a stitch then knit 6 then knit the front and back of a stitch then knit 6 and so on but I don’t end up with 40?? and what does the 4 times mean?? Do I do this for four rows. I have undone this three times because its not right can any one help. Thanks Tracy

The instructions within the brackets need to be repeated 4 times. So you should (kfb, k6, kfb,) (kfb, k6, kfb,) (kfb, k6, kfb,) (kfb, k6, kfb) Each kfb should give you an extra stitch, so you will gain a total of 8 extra stitches along the row- from 32 to 40.

Hope that makes sense…?
