Do I understand this decrease?
Do I understand these instructions correctly?
Hello Knitters! If anyone can help. I am working on what I think is (so far) a pretty easy flat, single pointed needle hat pattern (one that is not being knitted using dpns or circular needles, just straight needles and there will be a seam up the back). I am close to finishing and am beginning my decrease. For decrease the patterns states as follows:
(k10, k2tog)* Repeat 7 times to end
Next Purl
(k9, k2tog)*
Purl
(k8, k2tog)* Purl
(k7, k2tog)* Purl (k6, k2tog)* Purl
(k5, k2tog)* Purl
(k4, k2tog)* Purl
(k3, k2tog)* Purl
(k2, k2tog)* Purl
(k1, k2tog)* Purl
(k2tog)*
My ? is this: afterK10, k2tog 7x, when it says "Next Purl" does that mean just purl the entire row? And then after purling that, begin K9, k2tog, then purl that entire row, etc.? Or, is it just after completing k10, k2tog 7x, purl a stitch, THEN begin K9, k2tog, 7x, etc, ? I am inclined to believe it is purl the next entire row, then turn my work around and go on to k9,k2tog, 7x, but I admit I'm just not sure. Hope this makes sense and that someone can help. I'd hate to come as far as I have and then screw it up!!! lol... Thanks so much for your help!

Here is the link for the entire pattern:

You are knitting a flat piece to be seamed at the end. Therefore you will knit the front side and purl the back side.

did you start more than 1 thread or did my answer get lost?

one row you do the knit x stitches, k2tog, (RS)
the next row you purl (WS)
my other text was much longer but I think it still is somewhere.
