Alt rows.......again

Help needed once again, pattern says:-

Dec 1 at each end of next 3 rows, then on foll alt row, then on 3 foll 4th rows
So I do the first 3 rows, then do I do a normal row and Dec on next row, making it the 5th row, then the 9th 13th & 17th, (that makes it P rows) or do I Dec on the 4th 8th 12th & 16th?
This is the first knitting I picked up since my mum passed 2 yrs ago. She was my troubleshooter and I thought I’d picked a fairly simple pattern, but it’s a new one and tbh honest that last things I knitted were baby clothes from patterns from the 60s.

Thanks for your help.

You’ve got it perfectly. If you’d prefer to work the decreases on mostly knit rows you could delay the first dec to a knit row rather than starting on a purl row.
We learned so much about knitting from our moms and grandmothers.
