Bobbles can be worked in several different ways and there is usually a breakdown of the method prescribed by that pattern.

As a general rule you are simply knitting 3 or so stitches by themselves in the middle of a row, for a couple of rows and then going back to your normal knitting.

If you write out the exact bobble directions you were given, one of us can walk you through the process.

Well, once you understand what is happening it's pretty straight forward.

This is telling you to increase 1 stitch into 6 stitches by working a k,p,k,p,k,p into a single stitch.

Turn your work. You are now working only these 6 stitches until the bobble is completed.
Slip the first stitch as if to purl it (to produce a nice clean edge) then P the remaining 5 stitches of your bobble.

Turn your work and P2tog across the row to go from 6 stitches to 3 stitches.

Turn your work one last time. The right side is now facing you, slip the first stitch, knit 2 together and pass the slipped stitch over that k2tog. This gets you back to 1 stitch and you can finish the row you are working on.
