You'll decrease at the end of one row (usually the right-side row) and then work one row even.

If you're working stockinette, it's easy to remember because you'd decrease on the knit side and work the purl side without any decreases.

Each end Ingrid!!

Dec at the beginning and end of every RS row is usually what patterns mean by this.

Oops, that's what I meant--work the decreases at each end.
