Pattern Help + sign in pattern?

I've come across something I haven't seen and hoping someone can help. Here is part of the pattern and what I don't understand is the "+" in row #3:

(Multiple of 8 sts + 3)
Also see Chart.
Row 1: K2, *k2tog, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, ssk, k1; rep from * across to last st, k1.
Row 2 and all WS rows: Purl.

Row 3: K1, k2tog, *k1, yo, k3, yo, k1 +, dcd; rep from * across to last 3 sts,
ending last rep at +, ssk, k1.

Can someone let me know what this means?

Here's what the pattern says for Row 3: Row 3: K1, k2tog, *k1, yo, k3, yo, k1 +, dcd; rep from * across to last 3 sts, ending last rep at +, ssk, k1

Note that at the end of the instructions for this row it says "ending last rep at +" so the portion that is yo, k3, yo, k1 + the plus symbol is being used as the marker of where you end the last time you repeat this section of instructions.

Thank you so much KT! That helps more than you can know!
I now know where to come when I have any problems and get very thorough responses!
Again, Thank you!
