The details that are helpful and often required for us to help you are the pattern name, and a link to the pattern if possible. Some questions require us to know what yarn and needle size you're using because it can affect a pattern.

In this case we would like the pattern name and link if possible. And it would help if you'd type out the lines before and after you are having the problem.

The instructions are asking you to work on the next 3 sts: k1 then k2tog, then bring the yarn forward preparatory for the next step.
Presumably the k2tog, yfwd is in parentheses for a reason, perhaps it's repeated?

Do whatever's in the () as many times as it says. So Row 1 is
- K2, * K2tog k1, yo, k1 yo, k1, sl1, k1, psso, k3, and repeat all that from * to last 9 sts, which will be K2tog K1, yo, k1, yo, K1, sl1, k1, psoo, k2

These are all separate sts, a YO/yf doesn't use a stitch, the yarn is just wrapped around the needle between knit sts.
