Hi and welcome to Knitting Help.
Row 1: this will be the wrong side, (k2 p2) is repeated across all sts. That'll be 9 repeats of the instructions in parentheses. 36sts total on the needle.
Row 2: Knit into the front of the first stitch as usual but before you drop it off the needle, knit into the back loop of the same st. Then (P2, K2)8 times across, P2, W&T (there are directions for short rows or wrap & turn here. You'll end with 37 st, total: 1 on left needle, 36 on right needle).
Row 3: K2, (P2, K2) 8 times, P2. (37 sts total)
The bolded directions are telling you how to do things or giving you tips on how to do the pattern.
