That means to just knit the pattern stitch with no increases or decreases. If the garment is plain stockinette then you just continue that for 5 inches.

If the dec was on what would be row 1 of the pattern, then do row 2 next, and row 1 again without the decrease, then row 2, and so on.

Work each stitch as you have to to keep the seed stitch going correctly.
