Im making this sweater for my daughter and have finished the front and back. I want to make the sleeves on DPNs but i had a question.

heres the link: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/bunnyhop-baby-ruffle.html

I know that when working in the round when you only knit it is like working in stockinette. now with this pattern. the first 2 rows are knit so i would knit 1 row then purl the next. then basically do i switch the k's with ps throughout?
Row 3 (RS): P3, *k11, p3; rep from * to end.
Row 4: K3, *p11, k3; rep from * to end.
Row 5: P3, *SKP, k2, yo, SK2P, yo, k2, k2tog, p3; rep from * to end.
Row 6: K3, *p9, k3; rep from * to end.
Row 7: P3, *SKP, k1, yo, SK2P, yo, k1, k2tog, p3; rep from * to end.
Row 8: K3, *p7, k3; rep from * to end.
Row 9: P3, *SKP, yo, SK2P, yo, k2tog, p3; rep from * to end.
Row 10: K3, *p5, k3; rep from * to end.
Row 11: P3, *SKP, k1, k2tog, p3; rep from* to end.
Row 12: K3, *p3, k3; rep from * to end.
Row 13: P3, *SK2P, p3; rep from * to end.
Row 14: K3, *p1, k3; rep from * to end.
Change to MC
Row 15: P3, *k1, p3; rep from * to end.
Row 16: K3, *p1, k3; rep from * to end.

like row 3 would be k 11, p3
what about the skp and sk2p. i'd skip i purl one and so on?

i just want to be sure if i can do this before i actually start.
thanks!

You only need to change knits to purls and purls to knits on what are labeled WRONG side rows. The right side rows are as written.

You are right that you need to switch K's and P's, but you also have to reverse the order.

So row 4 which says:
K3, *p11, k3; rep from * to end.

Would be:
*P3, K11; repeat to last 3sts, P3

None of the decreases are done on WS rows, so when converting this pattern to the round you will not have to convert anything other than regular knits and purls.

I hope that makes sense.
