I am knitting a hat from an in the round pattern and have been able to understand everything up to where I am now, which is the decreasing portion. I am following a 1/1 ribbing and have been *P1, K1* each row. The decrease portion of the pattern reads as follows: (Remember to start with a P st.) Rnd 1: *Rib 6 in established pat, K2tog* around Rnd 2 (and all even rnds): K the K sts & P the P sts as they face you Rnd 3: *Rib 5 in established pat, K2tog* around Rnd 5: *Rib 4 in established pat, K2tog* around Rnd 7: *Rib 3 in established pat, K2tog* around Rnd 9: *Rib 2 in established pat, K2tog* around Rnd 11: *Rib 1 in established pat, K2tog* around Rnd 13: *K2tog* around I am on the first row of the decrease and am completely stumped as to what I am supposed to do. Any help people can volunteer is MUCH appreciated!! I will be learning to knit with circs at the end of the month but need to finish this hat next weekend. Thanks!!!!! Gretchen

Repeat these steps until the end of the row. on the following row there are no decreases, just continue in the ribbing you have established by knitting the knits (the 'v' ) and purling the purls (the '-' bumps) __________________ Sophie.
