Purl, knit, purl the 3 stockinette rows.
Ok so the instructions give you a decrease round (K2. K2tog. *K15. Sl1. K1. psso. K1. K2tog. Rep from *can 3 times more. K15. Sl1. K1. psso. K1. 92 sts.
Then you would work "Work 3 rows even in stocking st. " That's purl a row, knit a row and then purl a row. You're now set to knit on the NEXT ROW: K2. K2tog. *K13. Sl1. K1. psso. K1. K2tog. Rep from * 3 times more. K13. Sl1. K1. psso. K1. 82 sts.
Then "Work 3 rows even in stocking st. " So that's purl a row, knit a row, purl a row.
Each time the decreases are on a knit row and you're working purl, knit and purl rows so that you're ready for a decreases row on another knit row. That'll keep the knit side of the stockinette on the outside which is usually the pattern.
