Dog Sweater Help Needed
I am new to knitting and have conquered the basics, but I do not understand how to read the directions.

For example:
Dec Row (RS): K 1, k2tog, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k 1 23 (29, 35, 41) sts.

I understand that K means knit and sts means stitches but the rest doesn't make any sense.

After looking throught the videos, I know how to k2tog, but do not know when I am supposed to (at the beginning of the row, middile or end?)

"k to last 3 sts, k2tog" I assume it means knit to the last 3 stiches then knit 2 stiches together but I am unsure. I also don't understand the -23 sts part.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
