I bought a pattern for a Childs' Ruffled Cotton Classic Hat using Cotton Classics. I have two questions on it:
It shows Rounds 1, 2, 3, 4. Since I'm on circs, is the next row I start considered Round 2, or do you knit a plain row and then start Round 2?
Also, on Round 2 it says, *K1, sl 2tog kw, K1, P2 psso
, K1, p1* repeat * to * end K1.
My question is does that mean to slip two together knitwise, knit one, purl two, then pass the two stitches slipped knit-wise OVER the two purl stitches? It doesn't look right at all when I do that. It says it should go from 271 stitches down to 181, or decreasing 90 stitches, on the second round, and down to 91 stitches after the 4th.
And with Round 4: *Sl 2tog kw, K1, P2 psso,
P1 *repeat * to * end K1.
(Round 3 is knit the knits and purl the purls.)
Does any of this make sense?
(Italics are mine)
