QUESTION HOW TO
I have 8 rows established patt with 2-stitch garter selvedge on both edges and 8 sts decreased per repeat. When decreasing with patt sts, keep 3rd st from both ends in St st.

I am confused when reading this instruction, can someone help me?

Okay, begin all rows with k2, then the next st will be k on RS/p on ws, work in the pattern to the last 3 stitches then k on RS/p on WS and k2.

Rows 7 & 8: Same as Rows 3 & 4.
These 8 rows establish patt with 2-stitch garter selvedge on both edges and 8 sts decreased per repeat. When decreasing with patt sts, keep 3rd st from both ends in St st. Continue in patt until 6 sts rem, ending on a WS row.

Sorry, my server locked up and I only typed part of my comment. So, do I still use your former answer? Thank you so much.

Yes, knit the rows as Sue suggested. The pattern is actually doing this and keeping you in stockinette stitch on the 3rd stitch from the end. On the odd/RS rows the 3rd sts , the decreases are knits and on the even/WS rows, the stitches are purls with the exception of row 4:
Row 4, Sl1 wyif, k1, skp, purl to m, k2, p5, k2, p12, k2, p5, k2, purl to last 2 sts, k2
Maybe that's a typo? (It adds in a 9th decrease.)

Yes, sorry, it was a typo it should have read:
Row 4, Sl1 wyif, k1, purl to m, k2, p5, k2, p12, k2, p5, k2, purl to last 2 sts, k2

Thanks so much for all your help. I am new to the forum and didn't expect an answer so soon
