In the pattern when it says:
"Continue in rib as follows: *P7, K2*, repeat from *-*.
When piece measures 3-4-4 (5-5) cm / 1"-1"-1" (2"-2")dec all purled sections to P6 by purling tog the first 2 purled sts = 128-136-144 (160-176) sts on round.

(Is that 2" with the collar or 2" of ribbing?)

It talks about the piece which would be all that you've knit so far, so it's from the cast on.

I'm not too clear on this part of the pattern:

Read all of the following section before knitting it!
Work in stockinette sts back and forth on needle, at the same time dec 1 st each side on every other row a total of 2-2-2 (3-4) times.
AT THE SAME TIME inc 1 st on both sides of marker mid back on every other row a total of 4-4-4 (5-5) times.
After all inc and dec are complete there are 58-62-64 (72-76) sts on row.
When piece measures 11-12-13 (14-15) cm / 4 3/8''-4''-5 1/8'' (5''-6'') inc 1 st each side towards mid front on every other row 4-4-4 (5-5) times.

At the same time I dec at each side, I inc in the middle for every row? Or, dec at each side, inc in the middle for one row, then stockinette the next row? Or, dec at each side every other row, then inc the middle every other row without dec?...I'm so confused here.

You want to dec at the edge, inc either side of the marker at the center in the same row, purl a row, dec at the edge, inc either side of the marker at the center, and then purl a row. That would be 2 times and that would be the directions for the first 3 sizes. Repeat the dec/inc row as needed if you're making the larger sizes.

I'm confused, again, I'm sorry... I may have taught myself to knit 4 years ago but I haven't knit more than a week, if that, over the past 4 years...and I don't have anyone here that can help me out :(

Anywho, what I have measures 12cm (4 3/4"), I'm making size 6/9. After the 4 increases, I'm not understanding the next set of instructions: Now cast on 6 new sts towards mid front over the opening = 76 sts. Continue in the round on circular needles. I'm not sure how or what that means? Is that work the increases, then CO new sts all on the part I've been working on which would be the back, then work that in the round? Does that mean I join somewhere? I really appreciate the help I've gotten! Thank you!

When piece measures 11-12-13 (14-15) cm / 4 3/8''-4''-5 1/8'' (5''-6'') inc 1 st each side towards mid front on every other row 4-4-4 (5-5) times.
Now cast on 6-6-8 (8-12) new sts towards mid front over the opening = 72-76-80 (90-98) sts. Continue in the round on circular needle.
When piece measures 19-21-22 (24-26) cm / 7"-8 1/4"-8 3/4" (9"-10 1/4") from marker bind off all sts loosely.

Work the increases at either side of the front 4 times and on the next knit row, cast on 6sts. So you'll have your sts (70sts at this point) on the left needle and you can use a knit cast on to add 6sts. Now knit those 6sts and continue on around to the other edge and then join to work in the round again.
You were working in the round on the lower part of the hood and put 10sts on a holder for the face opening. Now you'll be back working in the round and casting on 6sts over the upper part of the face opening.

I made and attached the 2 pom-pom's and my son likes to pull out the strands of yarn, is there a way to make them more secure or is that something I'm just going to have to look out for?

I have most of it finished now, after redoing the face opening, I think it's still to small for his face but it doesn't look too bad. I hope I'll be done with it before bed

I bet it would still look really cute even without the pom poms.

Congrats on being so close to the end. I hope it fits!

I agree. Somehow little ifngers manage to get into things like pom-poms, braids or bows.
When you have a chance, it would be great to see a photo!
