Usually, the instructions tell you to bind off for armholes. You decrese so many stitches at the beginning of the first row and then the same number at the beginning of the next row.

If it says bind off, then put one over the other. If it says dec, then knit two together, or ssk, or whatever dec they might mention.

If it just says to decrease, then I would knit 2 stitches together. I'm all for simple.
