Newbie question

I am still on my first wearable. Here’s where I’m stuck…
Pattern reads: Keeping 2 sts at neck edge in garter st, dec 1 st at each neck edge every other row 10 times -see kniiting tips…
Knitting tips(for neckband): All decs are made from right side. Dec 1 st inside 2 edge sts knit in garter st as follows: After 2 edge sts: Slip 1 st as if to knit, K 1, psso. Before 2 edge sts: K 2 tog. I think I keep 2 edge garter sts the same on each side but, not sure about the decs.
Thanks, Pam

Yep, at the beginning of the right side rows (on the ‘public side’ of the garment–the side that will show), knit two stitches, then do the psso.

Then, when you only have four stitches left on the row, k2tog, and then knit the last two.

Just knit (or purl) the next row normally–no decreases.

You’re gently forming left and right slants (they’ll be more noticeable once you’ve done a few decrease rows).

Hope that helps!
