I am knitting a baby boy vest. What does ndl stand for?

Needle? What’s the context?

It read dec 1 st end of ndl eor. Thank you so much for your clarification.

Decrease 1 stitch at end of needle, every other row. Make sure it doesn’t say ‘[B]each[/B] end’ though.

Being new to knitting and I might add already quite addicted:) I am often confused by the shorthand notations:??
Much thanks for a clear and simple answer!
