confused by pattern.. cable scarf
so i've decided to attempt this scarf:

http://www.yarnagogo.com/good_ole_cabled_scarf/

but i don't understand this part:

"R8 and all following wrong side rows: (k1 p1) 3 times, k1, p3, k2, p9, k2, p3, k1, (p1 k1), 3 times.
R9: (k1 p1) 3 times, k4, p2, put the first 3 sts on cable needle, hold at front, k the next 3 sts, then k the 3 sts from cable needle, k3, p2, k4, (p1 k1) 3 times."

the K9 in row 8 is the cable, correct? so why do they split it into 3s and then knit 3 more seemingly out of place stiches? also i noticed they alternate between K and P for the flat part.. what effect does this have? how will it look if i just purl it instead? much thanks, i think i'm in over my head here.
