feeling dumb

I feel really stupid but I can't understand this pattern. I'm not even planning to knit it right now but I'd like to know that I could when I felt like it! So I'm looking at this: http://www.canknit.com/free/ns.html
and it states:

ABBREVIATIONS: ctr dbl dec
RS – Knit to within 1 st of ctr st. Slip 2 tog as if to knit, k1, pass 2 slipped sts over.
WS – Purl to within 1 st of ctr st. Slip 2 tog tbl as if to purl, p1, pass 2 slipped sts over.

and then in the actual directions, they use the "ctr dbl dec" abbreviation as follows:

2. Knit across, ctr dbl dec.

So, Ok. If you have 71 stiches when you get to row 2, does that mean that you'd knit 35 stitches, sl2 knitwise, k1, p2sso, knit to the end of the row?

Thanks. Sorry for being ignorant...
