beginner--how do i decrease in lace rib?

I'm a beginning knitter who's worked through a few basic scarves and hats, and learned how knit, purl, do some lacing, normal ribbing, etc. Right now, I'm making a hat and using a lace rib pattern that repeats in sets of 6 stitches and 4 rows, as follows:

Rnd 1: *P1, K2; rep from * to end of rnd
Rnd 2: *P1, YO, SSK, P1, K2; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 3: As Rnd 1
Rnd 4: *P1, K2tog, YO, P1, K2; rep from * to end of rnd

the pdf for the pattern can be found here:

I'm making the hat out of a wool-acrylic blend worsted weight yarn on 4 double pointed size 8 needles, with a gauge for a 4x4 inch square of 18 st X 24 rows. I have 84 stitches total, with 21 on each needle. Since the pattern I'm using for the lace ribbing is just something I found, I have no instructions for how to decrease and I can't figure out how to do it. Any advice?

I think this Fusilli Beanie is the same pattern or very similar. You can see how she decreased and maybe it'll work for your hat.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
