How can i decrease when i am making a hat using the knit 2 purl 2 pattern? usually for my hats i like to start decreasing with either a knit 5, 6 or 10 stitches and then knit 2 together (usually when i'm doing a knit 1 row and purl 1 row) Help!!

Try not to think of it as k2, p2 when decreasing. Instead, just following the established pattern and decrease accordingly.

k2tog, p2, k2 across
P2tog, k2, p2 across
k2tog ...etc ...

I'm surpised the patterns doesn't specify the decs :??
