I tried decreasing the first stitch, then continuing on with the pattern as if I didn’t decrease a stitch, that does not work.
No it won't, because you're missing the stitch. Slipping a stitch doesn't 'ignore' it, it would still be working that stitch, so you do the edge stitch as the 2nd stitch. Start the pattern repeat with the 2nd stitch instead. Or if you BO 4 sts, then the 5th st will be the one you work for the 4th BO, so the remaining sts will have to start with the 6th stitch.
