Crochet - Pattern confusion - Help

I am working the back and at the point where I am supposed to work side seam decreases. Pattern describes Rows 1, 2, 3 and then suggests pattern repeats. The previous pattern consisted of 2 rows. I am confused as to what the pattern is…Please see uploaded photo.

Many thanks in advance-


It seems to me that you’ve been working 2 rows of pattern as given at the very top of the photo. Rows 1,2 & 3 are now the decrease rows. Do these 3 rows then do the 2 row pattern. These are the 5 rows that are to be repeated once more. So repeat decrease rows1,2,3 and then pattern rows 1 & 2.
