What does this mean?
Ok, I'm still a relatively new knitter and I've decided to knit a bear. I found the pattern at Hobby Lobby. And the part that has me stumped is this k20,[k2tog,k1] 4 times, k2tog, k20- 49sts. Now I know what k2tog means but it's the four times that has me stumped. I have 54 sts on the needles at present. It's just confusing. I realize the abbreviations are to save space but it sounds like a foreign language. If anyone can help me it would be very greatly appreciated.

Knit 20 sts, then k2tog, k1, 2tog, k1, 2tog, k1, k2tog, k1, k2tog, k20 and you'll end up with 49 sts. You're decreasing 5 sts in the center with a k1 between decs.
