Arabian knitting pattern by Lisa Richardson

What does it mean in this pattern. dec 1 st at each end of next and 17 foll 4th rows.
I have tried to understand it but I am lost. I have been knitting for years but i am stuck with this.
I hope someone can help.

maybe 17 decreases, each after 3 rows = the next row (4th row) decrease (as salmonmac notes in her comment below) … one on each side (2 decreases each decrease row…

Welcome to the forum!
Yes, as SusieQ wrote, 3 rows with no decrease then a decrease row. Remember to dec at each end however (2 decreases per decrease row).
