Row 1 knit
Row 2 knit
Row 3 Purl
Row 4 (k 2tog) 3 times, (yo, k1) 6 times - and that is repeated across the row.
You begin with 90 stitches, and are supposed to end with 90 sts.
-----
Based on what you provided above, you can't start and end with the same number of sts. The 3 k2tog will only decrease 3 stitches, while the 6 YOs will increase 6 sts. Thus, you will have a gain of three each time you do the repeat.
Either the K2tog has to be worked 6 times (to match the YOs or the YOs need to be only repeated 3 times (to match the k2tog)


Addendum: I checked the LionBrand website and row 4 above, as you have it, is incorrect. It should be...

Row 4 *[K2tog] 3 times, [yo, k 1] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times; repeat from *.

Now you have (3 decreases, 6 increases and 3 decreases) per repeat. All is even!!
