You're doing some shaping here. Knit 17 stitches, slip the next stitch from the left needle to the right needle without working it, knit the next two stitches together (decrease) and then take that slipped stitch and pull it over the k2tog and drop it off the needle. The whole thing is a double decrease.

from the line of your pattern that can not be told. It says there to knit 17 stitches, then do the double decrease.

what does your pattern continue like? I would not think that it keeps doing more of these decreases in a row.

The decrease lets you get rid of 2 stitches in the same spot, so the shaping would be very drastic if you kept going with it.

How many stitches do you have to beginn with? Knit 17, slip one, k2tog (psso) to me sounds like: 17 + 1 slipped, plus 2 that get knit together.... that was 20 stitches before.

more information, that's good.

your pattern wants you to do short rows.

there are videos explaining that really well, like this:

http://garnstudio.com/lang/en/video.php?id=66

(on this page I only find short row with wrap, which is not what your pattern calls for).

so, basically, it wants you to work to that point, just turn your work around and work back to where you came from, mid row.
you do this as indicated in the pattern.
what happens is that you make one section of your knitting higher than the other. that can be one side, or the middle, or anything... you know?

your knitting takes shape by that and does not remain rectangular.
