Gauge: In k2,p2 rib: 14 sts/2 inches
(measure across unstretched ribbing)

Cast on 50 sts. Work 4 rows of k2,p2 ribbing (Row1 to Row4)

Row5: k6, (p2,k2) to within 6 sts of end, k6.

Row6: p6, (k2,p2) to within 6 sts of end, p6.

Row7: same as row 5.

Row8: k8, (p2,k2) to within 8 sts of end, k8.

Row9: p8, (k2,p2) to within 8 sts of end, p8.

Row10: same as row 8.

Row11: k1O, (p2,k2) to within 10 sts of end, k1O.

Row12: p1O, (k2,p2) to within 10 sts of end, p1O.

Row13: same as row 11.

Row14: k12, (p2,k2) to within 12 sts of end, k12, and so on

Continue changing in this manner until there are no (k2,p2) sts left and you are totally working in a set of a band of k and p. Knit across once. Bind off.

Fold this bound off edge in half against itself and sew to form pointed bonnet.



I want make sure I understand the pattern. When it says continue changing in this manner until there are no (k2, p2) sts left... Would the pattern follow like this .....:

Row 15: p12, (k2,p2) to within 12 sts of the end
Row 16: same as row 14
Row 17: k 14 (p2,k2) to within 14 sts of the end
row 18: p14, (k2,p2) to within 14 sts
row 19: same as row 17

DOes that sound about right or am I missing the ball?

Yes you have it right - Just keep adding 2 more sts before the k2, p2/p2, k2 section until you run out of k2p2 sts
