HELP - Stuck on baby's hat pattern
 
I'm currently working on the shaping of the crown that pattern is as follows

1st row *Patt2tog, patt 12 patt2tog rep from * 84
2nd row Patt to end working 1 less st in st-st at each end of each repeated block
3rd row * Patt2tog, patt 10 patt2tog, rep from * 72
4th row Patt to end working 1 less st in st-st at each end of each repeated block
5th row * Patt2tog, patt 8 patt2tog rep from *
6th row Patt to end working 1 less st in st-st at each end of each repeated block
7th row * Patt2tog, patt 6 patt2tog rep from *
8th row patt
9th row * Patt2tog rep from * to end
10th row * patt2tog rep from * to end
11th row * Patt2tog rep from * to end

I've managed to do upto the 4th row but when i try and do the 5th row the pattern dont go right

this is the pattern i'm working to

1st row should have been

* P3, (k2,p2) twice k2 p3, rep from * to end


2nd row

* K3 p2 (k2,p2) twice k3 rep from *

3rd row

* P3, (k2,p2) twice k2 p3, rep from * to end

4th row

* K3 p2, T3F, T3B, P2, k3 rep from * to end

5th row

* P3 k3 p4 k3 p3 rep from * to end

6th row

* K3 p3 C4B p3 k3 rep from * to end

7th row

* P3 k3 p4 k3 p3 rep from * to end

8th row

K3 p2 T3B, T3F p2 k3

How do i get the pattern to work for the crown.

Hope this makes sense

I figured this out for you. I worked the 8 rows of pattern and then did the decreases to see how they would work. I don't know how many times you do each of the decrease sections but the pattern repeat is over 16 stitches, so you will have some multiple of 16 when you begin the decreases. Here is what I found worked.

Row1: * P2tog, P1, (k2, P2) 2 times, k2, p1, p2tog (14sts); repeat from * for each 16 stitch section.
Row2: (k2, P2) across
Row 3: *P2tog, (k2, p2) 2 times, k2, P2tog; repeat from * in each section. (12)
Row 4: * K1, p2, T3F, T3B, p2, K1; rep from * in each section
Row 5: * K2tog, k2, p4, k2, k2tog; rep from * in section (10).
Row 6: *P3, C4B, p3; rep from * in each section
Row7: *K2tog, k1, p4, k1, k2tog; rep from * in each section (8)
Row 8: *P1, T3B, T3F, P1; rep from * in each section.
Row 9: (P2tog) 4 times in each section. (4)
Row 10: (k2tog)2 times; in each section. (2)
Row 11: P2tog in each section. (1)

So you end up with one stitch in each section. From there you no doubt close up the top of the hat and seam it. This is a very nice cable and it looks real good the way it comes together worked this way.
