Hi there,

I found this pattern in the general forum my question is : Should I decrease only on a purl row and then knit the next row as is?
many thanks.

Cast on 90 stiches
Rib: 1x1 rib for 1 1/2 inches: 1k, 1p to end -- start each row with a knit and end each row with a purl so you stay on track.
Body: Stockinette stitch for 3 1/2 inches: k one row, p next row
(put whatever kind of pattern you like here, I use this site to create a chart for this guage and sketched out the logo you see above)
Decrease:
k2tog, *8k, k2tog repeat from * to end
purl row
k2tog, *7k, k2tog repeat from * to end
purl row
k2tog, *6k, k2tog repeat from * to end
purl row
continue in this fashion until 10 to 15 stiches remain (you'll see that the decreased stitches line up to form nice "darted" lines in the hat)
Finish:
cut the yarn, leaving a 24 inch tail. Thread the tail through the remaining stitches and use to sew up back of the hat.

I think you are decreasing only on the knit rows and just purling normally on the purl rows.

Yep, it's written with the decreases on the knit row; you purl the row in between decrease rows.
