Sleeve cap dec
Hello!
I am a bit confused!
My pattern says
BO 4 st. at beginning of next 2 rows
Decrease 1 st every second row 5 times
Decrease 1 st every 3rd row 9 times
Decrease every 2nd row 7 times


My question is this…After the 4 st dec at beginning of next 2 rows what do I have to do ?

A.
Decrease every 2nd row
1:knit
2:dec row
x 5 times

then..
1:knit
2:knit
3:Dec row
x 9 times

After the 9th dec
(dec 1 every 2nd row)

1:knit
2:Dec row
x 7 times

OR
B.

Decrease every 2nd row
1:Dec row
2:knit
x 5 times

then
1:Dec row
2:knit
3:Knit
x 9 times

After the 9th dec
(dec 1 every 2nd row)

1:Dec row
2:knit
x 7 times

Thank you in advance!

The BO will be at the beg of the RS row, then the WS row. The decs are done on the RS row to begin with - you dec every other row for 5 times, then every 3rd row and some will be on the WS. After 9 of those decs, you go back to every other row 7 times.

Thank you for your message!
I am not sure I understand. Maybe I did not put it right because of my poor english
Let's just forget about this pattern and assume I am asked sometime to dec 1 stitch every 3rd row x times. How do I deal with that?

1 Dec
2 knit
3 knit

or
1 Knit
2 knit
3 Dec

Thank you again and sorry for asking silly questions!

Either way is sort of right - every 3rd row is work 2 rows, do a dec row, work 2 rows, do a dec row. You begin counting row 1 on the row after your last dec row. So you do your every other row decs -
dec
row
dec
row
dec
- then switch to every 3rd row
row
row
dec
row
row
dec
