Well I'm trying to make some little hearts. And its a really very simple pattern. Yet I just dont understand some things.It says:

"Rows 1-3: K1, YO, K across to center stitch, K3 in center stitch, K across til 1 loop remains on left needle, YO, k1, turn."

I dont understand the knit across to the center stitch part. What does that mean?

as an example, if you had 21 stitches in your pattern:
k1, yo, k9 more stitches
then
center stitch (11th stitch): knit 3 times into the same stitch
then continue on with the pattern.

The center stitch is the one in the very middle of the row. If you cast on 13, say, the center stitch would be the 7th stitch. You probably ought to mark it in some way so you don't lose track of it.

So you k1, yo, then knit all sts up to the center st, k3 in it, then knit the rest of the row except for the last st, then yo and k1.

You mean, how do you knit 3 stitches into it?

K1, leave the stitch on the left needle, yo, then k again into the same stitch. It's a different type of increase and it took me a while before I figured it out when I first encountered it.
