How to bind off every other row?

Hi
I'm trying to understand how to shape the armholes in the front and back of a sweater. My pattern says:
On every other row bind off 2x2 sts and 3x1st at both ends for the armholes.

What I did:
Row1 (RS): bind off 2 sts. Knit to the end of row. Because you cannot bind off stitches at the end of a row, I did it at the beginning of the wrong side row :
Row2 (WS): bind off 2 sts. Purl to the end of the row.

Row3 (RS): bind off 2 sts. Knit to the end of row.
Row4(WS): bind off 2 sts. Purl to the end of the row.
The I did the same for the 3x1 st at both ends of the armhole.

My question is: is this binding off on EVERY OTHER ROW?

I hope I'm clear enough for you to understand my question.
Kind regards
Maria

Hello Maria,

You did it correctly because you spaced it out evenly every other row on each side. Great job!
