First Hat Attempt--Help Please
I have a pattern for a hat using Plymouth Yukon yarn that I wanted to knit prior to attempting the "Kelly Hat" In the photo, the hat appears to be rib stitch, but the pattern reads to cast on 42 stitches, place marker and knit in the round until 6 1/2 yards are left. So, my question is THIS...do I just knit in the round or do I knit a round and purl a round until 6 1/2 yards are left?

I'll go ahead and ask my next question because although I haven't arrived there yet, I know they are coming The pattern tells me to then begin decreasing on round 1-6 (I'm assuming from where I ended?) and change to double pointed needles as needed...how do I know when they are needed? :?
