Confusion about how to count the rows

I am knitting a man's jumper with a Shawl Collar.

Shaping the neck and knitting one side of the front at the neck:

"Cont. on last 36 sts. Dec one st at neck edge in 2nd row, then in every following 10th row until 27 sts rem".

My question is:

Do I knit two rows decreasing in the 2nd row then keep counting from that 2nd row to 10 rows and decrease again or knit the first 2 rows then start counting the rows from 1 to 10 again?

YOUR ANSWER


You count from the first row after each decrease row.

So you knit 1 row, decrease on the next row, knit another 9 rows, and then decrease on the next row.

Knit another 9 rows, increase on the next row etc.
