Pattern Help - Decreases on Purl Side?
I've been away from knitting for about a year now. I decided to start up again with a simple sweater I could wear in the office.

Here is the free pattern from Tahki Stacy Charles.

I started with the back piece - 11 inches of st st. So far, so good...until I get to the decreases for the sleeve. I don't get confused by the first bit which I think I did correctly:
"Shape Armholes
Bind off 4 (4, 5, 5, 6, 6) sts beg next 2 rows."

Here is the part that threw me:
"Dec 1 st each end next 5 rows."

So I did a k2tog after the first two st on the right side followed by ssk before the last two st. That seems right to me. Then I turned it to the wrong side...and it seems weird now. I don't remember doing p2tog and whatever its mirror is on previous sweaters. I only remember my right side decs.

So I guess my question is:

Am I supposed to be doing those decs on the wrong side as well and also how do I do them?

Gosh, this is the longest thing I've ever written on the internet! Thank you so much if you are able to read and help!
