Hi all!

I am working on my first sweater, the "Last minute stripes sweater" from knitpicks.  There are three lines causing me some confusion:

BO 2 sts beginning of the next 2 rows.
BO 2 (2,2,3) sts beginning of the foll 2 rows.
Dec 1 st each end of the next RS row 55(59, 63, 67) sts left.

My question is this.  For the Dec 1 row, is the decrease done by binding off as in the two rows above it?  Or is the author leaving this up to interpretation? 

Thanks for the help!

I take it to mean you decrease, not bind off. I'd do a k2tog on one side and a ssk on the other.

The dec probably refers to a k2tog or ssk decrease.  A good rule of thumb for full fashioned decreases on RS rows is to use k2tog at the beginning of the row and ssk at the end.
