Help
I found this pattern but its hard to und. it.So i need some help.
This is pattern:
GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K sts on all rows.

HAT:
Piece is first worked back and forth on circular needle and then in the round.
Cast on 86-94 sts with on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6. K 1 row from WS, then work as follows: 6 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above, * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-*, finish with K 2 and 6 sts in garter st.
Continue rib and in garter st in each side until piece measures 4 cm / 1''. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Now work as follows: 6 sts in garter st, A.1 over the next 74-82 sts and finish with 6 sts in garter st. When piece measures 8 cm / 3 1/8'', bind off the first 6 sts on needle, then work in the round with A.1 over all sts = 80-88 sts.
When piece measures 20-21 cm / 8"-8 1/4'', work in GARTER ST - see explanation above - until finished measurements.
Work in garter st, AT THE SAME TIME dec 12 sts evenly every 3rd round a total of 5 times = 20-28 sts remain on round.
Now K2 tog around, cut the thread and pull it through the remaining sts. Tighten tog and fasten.
The hat measures approx. 25-26 cm / 9 3/4"-10 1/4" vertically. Sew 2 buttons on to flap at the bottom of hat, sew through both layers.

Something i und. but something not.
What mean: then work as follows: 6 sts in GARTER ST?
and : * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* ??

I would appreciate if anyone can help me to und. this pattern.

Hi & welcome to KH. You will repeat the instructions between * * until the last 6 sts.
Knit the first and last 6 sts of each row and work your k2p2 rib in between.
K6, *k2, p2, k2,p2 (keep doing k2,p2) until you have 6 sts left, knit the last 6 stitches.
Next row will be the same, knit 6, work k2,p2 rib until the last 6 sts, knit 6. (If your rib comes out starting with purls, then do p2,k2)

Thank You for explanation. Now i really und. that part well.
This part:
Continue rib and in garter st in each side until piece measures 4 cm / 1''.
Does it mean just to do knit until reach 4cm??

I am trying to und. part by part, so after this i will probably ask for Your help again about something in this pattern. Hope i wont be too boring..:$

And thanks for the welcome.

Just keep repeating the knit and rib rows until you get a piece that is 4 cm from your cast on edge.

You're learning to read and understand a knitting pattern, no small task. It's worth the effort.

What's your pattern called? Maybe we can find it online and see what you're making. That's often helpful and always fun.

It's a very good looking hat and you've gotten good advice from GG, of course. Remember too, to follow the chart, A1 for the rib pattern.

Place a marker where you begin knitting on the circular needle and where you join to knit in the round (instead of back and forth).

Read chart A1 starting at the bottom right and working the sts from right to left. Since you're working in the round at this point you only work the rows of the chart from right to left. When you get to the beginning of the round marker, move up to the next row of boxes.

The open boxes are knit sts and the X boxes are purl sts.
Round 1 is a repeat of k1,p1,k1,p1.
Round 2 is the same.
Round 3 is all knit sts.
Round 4 is all purl sts.
