I have a request for this had by a mother/daughter team. The daughter is only 3 but has a 19.5" head, mother has 22.5" head. How do I reduce the pattern to the daughters size??

Use smaller needles and thinner yarn, or cast on about 24 or 28 sts. The stitch numbers for the rows after Row 4 will be that many less too.

Reducing the pattern for smaller size
Used #6 needles and Berroco Comfort DK. Worked pattern with all stitches and as you can see, the size was not reduced. Will now try to reduce the number of stitches and see if it will come up small enough for the little girl version.

Hi and welcome to Knitting Help.
Row 1: this will be the wrong side, (k2 p2) is repeated across all sts. That'll be 9 repeats of the instructions in parentheses. 36sts total on the needle.
Row 2: Knit into the front of the first stitch as usual but before you drop it off the needle, knit into the back loop of the same st. Then (P2, K2)8 times across, P2, W&T (there are directions for short rows or wrap & turn here. You'll end with 37 st, total: 1 on left needle, 36 on right needle).
Row 3: K2, (P2, K2) 8 times, P2. (37 sts total)
The bolded directions are telling you how to do things or giving you tips on how to do the pattern.
