Interpretation of Instructions - HELP PLEASE

I am a good beginner and this pattern is from England (cap sleeve top). I have cast on 83 sts and worked 2-3/4 inches (st-st). Now it says, “Work 16 rows dec 1 st at each end of next and foll 14th row”. Ending with 79 sts. Huh? I just want to know which row numbers I will dec 1 st which totals 4 dec sts. Looking for simple English. Next and foll are not clear to me.


Decrease at each end on the next row (the first of the next 16 rows) and then on the 14th row after that.

Ingrid…thank you so much! I think sometimes too many words are used. Cat
