What am i doing wrong?

Hello all! I was wondering if someone could help me with a pattern. I’ve tried it 4 separate times and keep ending up at the end of row 9 with the k2tog 2x, before getting to the last 4 knit stitches. Is it me or do the stitches end up this way? Any help would be appreciated!

Cast on 189 stitches
Rows 1-6, knit
Row 7, 9, 11, 13. K5. *(K2tog) twice. (yo. K1) 3 times. yo. (ssk) twice. K1. Rep from * to last 4 sts. K4.
Row 8, 10, 12, 14. K4. Purl to last 4 sts. K4
Row 15-16. Knit

Nevermind, I think I figured it out. I’m doing the yo before the ssk both times!

Welcome to KH!
The row adds up correctly with the 12stitch repeats x15. The yo won’t use a stitch. It’s made by bringing the yarn to the front between the needles and then back over the right hand needle. That’s it.

Thank you salmonmac! I realized instead of doing yo (ssk) 2x I was doing (yo, ssk) 2x. Now I’m trying to go back three rows without starting over…again. Thanks again!!
