Brioche Stitch - Basic Decreases Tutorial:

When counting stitches in Brioche Stitch, yarnovers are not included in the stitch count; they are paired with a knit or purl stitch (only when working in the round), and the pair of knit/yarnover or purl/yarnover are counted as a single stitch. The stitch pattern will produce a very pronounced rib; count only the purl and knit columns when counting stitches.

When working decreases, you will always be decreasing two stitches at a time in order to preserve the rib pattern.
