Help with Sirdar pattern decreases

i am working on a sirdar pattern 4575 and i am stumped it is time to decrease and pattern says decrease on 3rd row and following 4th row … 4th row is on a purl side and is opposite of decrease side … cannot find an errata for it …need help

If you decrease on row 3, the following 4th row is row 7 which should be the same side… Usually, patterns try to keep decreases on the same side if possible.

thank you ive been writing it on paper marking this is my 3rd try i keep frogging it all out…again and again .

@moonwalker it’s so frustrating isn’t it!

yes it is
