(3sc, 3 inc) 2 times

Inc means make 2 stitches into 1 stitch.  You have 3 inc so thats 6 stitches.  You have the 3 sc you made before the increases so added to the 6 you have 9 stitches.  You do everything within ( ) two times so 18 stitches total

This unfortunately is one of too many patterns out there written in an abbreviated form rather than the accepted standard which makes it very difficult for those just learning to read patterns.  Patterns can be very much like working a puzzle.  You have to look at supplied photos and see what shape you need to make.  Often there are close ups so you can see if many stitches are worked into one stitch or not.  Stitch counts also help.

Ok 4 increase does it mean do all the increases in one stitch or do 4 in one at and 4 in another and so on?

Neither!

Here is some info on reading patterns.  This is the accepted standard.

This one shows some of the abbreviated methods.

I'm not sure how easy they are to find in general, but I found one by accident by wandering into my tiny town's library to kill a little time (hubby was doing something next door) and there was a group crafting away (I didn't join the group).  Maybe check your library online to see if they have something similar?   Your YMCA might be an option to check out too.   Or, if you have a nearby independent yarn shop, that might be the place to ask--they might even host them.

It was hard precovid but even the groups I knew of locally seem to have gone virtual since COVID.

Independent yarn stores used to be a resource but the ones still in business since COVID are offering remote groups and classes.

If you think of places people gather for doing things socially those are places to check for meet ups.
