no think about it. if you have 80 stitches you should be able to repeat "k6, k2tog" 10 times in that first round because you are using 8 stitches in each repeat. Same thing happens with each subsequent decrease row. next would be 5, then 4, then 3, etc. Eventually you will get to where they don't fit on your circs (assuming you are using circs) and you will need to change to DPNs. at that point they are very easy to use!

I'm not using circ's.


So when I get to row 11 or 13 I'll have the 18 stitches on the needles???

This is my first pattern and first decrease.


And yes, I am throughly confused.

Oh my gosh...that hat is adorable!! Kids often don't like hats.. maybe you can distract him long enough for a photo in it.
