This teddy bear pattern says it's for beginners, but I don't think they're right about that!

Ok, so the last time I asked about help with this pattern, it was to reverse shapings to match one side of the face to the other. Well, I conquered that with your help, so I'm hoping that you can help me decifer this next part on the gusset of the head.

I have worked the decrease row as written with no problems, but then it tells me to do this:

Dec in this way at each end of 2 foll 4th rows and next 2 RS rows. 4 sts.

I'm starting out with 12 stitches on my needles, and each decrease row decreases by 2. So, how do I translate this to get from my 12 sts down to my 4 sts?

Would this mean I'd just purl my next row, knit a row, purl a row, then work the decrease row; repeat one more time, then decrease on my next two RS rows?

TIA!
