Repeat last row until there are 126 stitches on needle.
Next Decrease Row Knit 2, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k to end.
Repeat last row until there are 7 stitches on needle.
Next Decrease Row Knit 2, k2tog, k2tog, k to end.

Hi and welcome!
I'm not sure if there's something in particular that you're puzzled about in this pattern. There are videos for yarn over (yo) and knit 2 together (k2tog) on the Glossary page that may help. If it's something else, just post again.

k=knit
yo = yarn over; this is an increase. You create a loop over your needle and knit it like a stitch on the next row.
