lost in instructions

pattern says:
*K1. yfwd. K2.
Sl1. K2tog. psso.
k2.yfwd. Rep from * to last st. K1.

My question is; Do I begin with one knit then bring my yarn forward to knit two more increasing to 5 stitches. Then decrease it by 2 stitches on the second line.(to cancel it out) and then add two more from the third line? -making it bigger?

or do I Increase by one on the first line and knit two? Does the yfwd go with the k1 or the K2?
Thanks!

This is all one row.

You start by knitting one stitch.

Then you bring your yarn around the right needle (in between the needles and over the top. This created another stitch with a hole underneath.
(one stitch increased)

Now you knit two stitches.

Next you slip (in this case as if to knit) one stitch from the left needle to the right needle without doing anything more to it right now.

Next you knit two stitches together (just insert your right needle in the usual manner except through the second to last stitch on the left needle straight through the first stitch on the left needle. Wind your yarn around and draw through the two stitches together).
(one stitch decreased)

Now, with the tip of your left needle pull the slipped stitch over the top of the stitch you just made.
(another stitch decreased)

Next you knit two stitches.

Finally, you bring your yarn over the right needle as before.
(a second stitch increased)

You have increased a total of two stitches and decreased a total of two stitches.

Repeat this over and over until the end of the row. When you come to the last stitch you will knit it. This stitch establishes symmetry in your pattern.

I don't know what the rest of your pattern is like, but if it says something like "Row 2 and all other wrong-side rows: Purl" , when you get to the stitches that are created by the yarn-forwards they will appear to be just lines of yarn lying over the needle with a hole underneath. Treat them as you would any stitch and purl them. Make sure they do not fall off the needle.

This should give you the start of a nice lace pattern.
