I've been working on this pattern for a while

Im on the armhole and v neck shaping part of the left front. Here are the instructions for this part:

Armhole and V-neck shaping:
1st row: Cast off 4 sts. Knit to last 2 sts. K2tog (neck edge).
Place marker.
2nd row: P2tog. *KB1. P2. Rep from * to last 2 sts. P2tog.
3rd row: K2tog. Knit to last 2 sts. K2tog.
Cont in pat, dec 1 st at armhole edge on next 2 rows at the same time dec 1 st at neck edge every alt row twice, then every following 4th row until there are 33 (35-42) sts on needle.
Cont in pat until work from beg measures 27 (28-29) ins [68.5 (71-73.5) cm] ending with WS facing for next row.
Shoulder shaping: Cast off 11 (12-14) sts beg next and following alt row. Work 1 row even.
Cast off rem 11 (11-14) sts.

Here is my issue. I have seven stitches to still decrease, and the piece measures approximately 25 1\2 inches already. I would have to knit abother 28 rows, decreasing once every 4th row to have the proper # of stitches remaining.

Does row 1-3 make up the pattern i should be following in addition to the other instructions for decreasing? I had just assumed i would follow the p2 kbl1 pattern i have used for the whole thing....?!?

Thanks. :^(
