Welcome!
Are you dropping off both loops of the double yarn over or just one? Usually it's just one stitch of the double yarn over but your pattern might well be different. Yes, you would just let...

You're so good to be starting on Christmas gifts. I'm a slow knitter, too but we'll both get there in the end. The alpaca should be lovely to work with. Enjoy!

It's likely a k2tog but I agree that it's confusing to substitute "dec" when it would be about as easy to write "k2tog". That'll maintain the stitch count across the row.

Welcome to the forum!
Try it again and watch each stitch as you make it. It may help to put markers every 3 sts so it's easier to see where the pattern goes wrong.

Welcome to knittingHelp!
Can you give us a link to the pattern or a pattern name?
It is a bit confusing. It might have meant to say "knit to 3sts before the marker, p3, slip marker.

Are you using the same type of yarn for the duplicate stitch (wool, acrylic?)? My tendency would be to do the duplicate stitch and then block but I've only done small areas of duplicate stitch.
