Please help with confusing instruction!!!
Hi! I am not a new knitter, but this has me so confused, arghhhh!

The pattern says:

K1, Inc in next st. *K5, ssk, K2tog, K5. (Inc in next st) twice. Rep from * to last 16 sts. K5, ssk, K2tog, K5. Inc in next st. K1.

Ok, I'm totally fine with all of it except the bolded underlined part. Is it telling me to increase in the next two stitches??? Or is it saying to repeat the first line of instructions completely over? I can't believe I can't figure this out, but it's really giving me fits

Yep, it's kfb in the next 2 sts because you do what's in the () twice. You repeat everything between the *s until you have 16 sts left.
