Pattern decryption help please...
I'm attempting to knit Christmas decorations as my nanny used to make but I'm new at reading patterns and simply can't quite grasp it. The pattern says:

1st (inc.) row: *Inc. k.wise; repeat from * to end-22 sts. **
Beginning with a p. row, s.s. 15 rows.
Break off r. And join in pk. For head.
*** s.s. 11 rows.
Next (dec.) row: * p.2 tog.; repeat from * to end-11 sts.

I understand most of the abbreviations but the asterixes have me befuddled. Could someone please decipher for me?

Many thanks!

Repeat what's in the single *s first, that's on a single row. Then you would repeat the whole section between the multiple *s. However unless you've only written part of the instructions and left some out, they don't seem to match. What's the pattern and do you have a link to it?
