Dec (as before) in next and alt rows


I'm attempting to knit a sweater, but I am stuck. As you can (hopefully) see in the picture, it says to Dec (as before) in next and alt rows.
My question is, what does it mean by "as before" and what does that look like for alternate rows?

How to decrease as before in raglan shaping
by: Ratchadawan

You would work all the decreases as the same as row 3 since it's starting on the right side.

So, what you'll do next are as follows;

Work the next row (row A) as same as row 3.
Then work the next row (row B) even without decreasing (purl).

Then repeat these 2 rows (A&B) above until you get to your required number of stitches.

Thanks for sharing the question and visit.
Have a great day!
