The math works out, this is what you will knit on the first decrease row:

K1
K2tog, K7, ssk
K2tog, K7, ssk
K2tog, K7, ssk
K2tog, K7, ssk
K1

The four pattern repeats from *to* use 11 stitches, and each pattern repeat contains two stitch decreases (the k2tog and the ssk)
This will decrease your original stitch count by eight stitches from 46 stitches to 38 stitches.

Hope this helps
Dear Claire Thanks so much for your help, hopefully I will finish this hat before the snow flies. Brrrr. Many Thanks.
