Jeannee Worsted Knit Chemo Cap Pattern
Working on Easy Ribbed Chemo Cap. Knitted most of cap in *(P1,k4); repeat from * around. Need to start dec rds & 1st rd = *(Pattern 8, k2tog); repeat from * around. WHAT IS MEANT BY PATTERN ??? P1,K4 ??? AND the "8" = 8 times before k2tog??? Next rd = Work in pattern ??? Does it mean to go back to P1,k4?

Making these for local charity & need your help, PLEASE!

Work 8 stitches in pattern in this case is to knit the knits and purl the purls. So on the first round you'll

p1, k4, p1, k2, k2tog all the way around. This will leave you with
p1, k3, all the way around for the next round.

Those caps are great things to make. They're much appreciated.
Pattern 8 means to work the next 8sts in pattern, so yes, p1,k4,p1, k2 then k2tog. Then keep going with the sts as you see them, knit the knits and purl the purls for 8sts, then k2tog. On the next round, I would again knit the sts that look like knits (the Vs) and purl the sts the look like purls (the loops). You can't really go back to the p1, k4 and keep a nice line going because of the decreases. There are undoubtedly more decrease rounds to come so it'd be difficult to see the p1, k4 anyway.
