Can someone please explain this to me?
P2, [KB1] 3 times, *p3, KB1, p3 [KB1] 3 times; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.

I get the p2 part, I'm confused about the 3 times part. If you could explain this line to me I would be everlastingly grateful. Thanks so much!

When it says x number of times you do what it says in parenthesis. So in this case -

P2, [KB1] 3 times,=

P2, KB1, KB1, KB1

This next part you repeat everything between the asterisks across to the last two stitches while continuing to to do the KB1 3 times for the second one in the group...

*p3, KB1, p3 [KB1] 3 times; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.=

p3, KB1,, p3, KB1, KB1, KB1, p3, KB1, p3, KB1, KB1, KB1....etc to last two stitches then p2.

What are you making??
