Doesn't the pattern state how to make holes for the cord? It sounds like a row of yarn overs, with dropping the yo's on the next row, followed maybe by another row of knitting/purling or k2 p2 (knit one, yo, k1, yo,..., then k(or purl) one, drop yo, k/p1, drop yo,...)

That would make a row of holes. Though, without pattern or picture, it's hard to tell.

Do you have the link to the pattern?

The next row tells you how to make the holes. The yrn, k2tog is yarn a yarn over, k3tog sequence that will give you holes.

Next row: * K.2, w.r.n., p.2 tog., rep. from * to last 2 sts., k.2. Change to No. 8 (5) needles and beg. with 2nd row, work 3 rows in rib and inc. 1 st. at end of last row. Change to No. 7 (6) needles and rice stitch.
This is the instruction for making the holes. When you arrive at the point where it says "make holes", it means to knit this row (which logically comes after the one before it).

It's as follows: *K2, yo, p2tog* to the last 2 stitches, k2.
(w.r.n. means "wrap round needle", which is the same as "wrap yarn round needle" or "yarn over")

It's learning new terminology; after you've seen the same type of instructions a couple times, it won't be as confusing because you'll know what they mean.
