how to read this pattern?
hi what does this mean ?

repeat dec row every 6th row once, evry 4th row once,
every 2nd row 4 times - 4 sts.


Does this mean I knit 6 rows then dec , then knit 4 rows then dec then knit and dec every 2nd row until it comes to an end?

Yes. Decrease on the row you're on, then knit 6 rows and decrease, knit 4 rows and decrease, then every other row 4 times and if that brings you to the end of the project, that's it. So counting that first decrease, there are 7 rows total with decreases in them.

Not quite, work 5 rows and decrease on the next one, the 6th row.

"then knit 4 rows then dec"
Again, only knit 3 rows and decrease on the next one which will be the 4th.

"then knit and dec every 2nd row until it comes to an end?"
Yes, decrease every other (same as every 2nd) row, until you're down to 4 stitches.
