I am so confused right now. I am kind of new to knitting but I do not understand this part of my pattern:

When back measures 8 3/4", bind off 3 sts each side for armholes i.e

bind off in beg of next 2 rows = 32 sts.

Work 3 rows and then start dec for raglan each side (see Decreasing above) on every other row as follows:

1st 7 times and then on every row 1 st 2 times.

Bind off remaining 14 sts.

Piece measures approx 13½"

I have done everything up to the 1 st 7 times every other row. How do I do that?

Do I take 1 st of at the beginning of say row 1 row 3 row 5 row 7? That is only 4 sts and 7 rows and then 2 more sts for a total of 6sts. and I need to be left with 14. I am not understanding this. Thank you,
