Help please. I am a fairly new at this....

I currently have 93 stitches on my row, what does the following mean:

buttonhole row: K2, k2tog, y2rn, skpo, k to end, decreasing as set. 85 sts.

It is the "decreasing as set" that I don't understand. How can I go from 93 to 85 stitches especially when y2rn means putting the yarn around the needle twice (I think).

After I figure out what that means, this is the next line: Work to end, working twice in y2rn.

I'm not sure at what point "working twice in y2rn" happens??

Change to smaller needles.

K to end, decreasing as set. Oh no, the decreasing as set is back again!

Thanks, appreciate any help out there.
