I started this shirt, but I'm confused on row 8.
it says i need to "hd2tog in next 2 sts"

"Hdc2tog: (yo, insert hook in next st, yo, draw yarn through st) twice, yo, draw yarn through 5 sts on hook"

does this mean that a hdc2tog takes up 2 stitches?  or is a hdc2tog done all on one stitch?
will all this end up adding/subtracting stitches??

i'm not really sure what i'm supposed to be ending up with here on this row, and your help would be grealy appreciated!!

the hdc2tog takes 2 stiches. first, yarn over the hook(you should have 2 loops on your hook), insert in first stitch, yarn over, pull through ONCE(now you should have 3 loops on your hook), then yarn over the hook again(theres 4 loops on the hook), stick in into the NEXT stitch, yarn over, pull through(now you should have 5 stitches on your hook), then yarn over the hook and pull through the 5 stitches on your hook and that's the hdc2tog  Cheesy you do this quite a bit in the pattern (i just finished mine O.o) hope this makes sense!

Ryorki, thanks for helping here. Yup, the Hdc2tog (half double crochet two together) just makes 1 stitch out of two - it's a decrease. In Cupcake you make it, among other places, at the beginning and end of rows to create some waist shaping on the front and back pieces.
