When a pattern says 'rib 4' or 'pattern 4' it means to work 4 stitches in the pattern, so it's not 4 ribs or 4 repeats of the pattern.
So for this one, do 4 sts in the rib patten, then knit or purl 2 tog (whichever the dec happens to land on) work the next st as a k or p, then work 2tog, and repeat the 'work 1 st, rib 2tog' 13 times, end with 5 stitches in the rib pattern and you're left with 36 sts.
