Decrease Question

I have a decrease question. The pattern reads
P1, *K1, P1 repeat from * across. I am to decrease 2 stitches - one at each end of row. Do I P1, K1 together as a knit or purl stitch and then what is my next stitch?

I’d probably knit the first two together and purl the next; at the end of the row, if it ends p,k,p, then knit the last two together.

Thank you for your help and also on my other question I had.
