reading a pattern
HI, I'm trying my hand at knitting something beyond a straight scarf. Found a nice pattern for a baby bib. I don't know how to follow the pattern. Could someone explain step by step?:

the pattern doesn't have a glossary or key, so i'm unsure about the abbreviations.

Could someone translate and explain for me?

"This bib...worked in “segments.” Decreases are worked at the edges of each segment, bringing each one to a point.

Using Long-Tail CO, CO 86 (100) sts [this i understand]

Decrease Row 1 (RS): K1, [k2tog, k8 (10) sts, ssk, pm] 7 times, k1—72 (86) sts remain. Knit 5 rows.

Decrease Row 2 (RS): Change to St st. Decrease 14 sts this row, then every 4 rows 3 (4) times, as follows: K1, [k2tog, knit to 2 sts before marker, ssk, sm] 7 times, k1—16 sts remain. Work even for 3 rows, removing markers.

Decrease Row 3 (RS): K1, [k2tog] 7 times, k1—9 sts remain. Work even for 1 row.

Decrease Row 4 (RS): [K3tog] 3 times—3 sts remain. BO all sts.
