Hat decreases
I am working on a version of Half Dome from Knitty. Someone was kind enough to post the directions for decreases to knit the hat in the round.

Instead of working in stockinette I am working in a pattern of:

Row 1: YO K2tog
Row 2: purl

I would like to keep this pattern for the entire hat (instead of switching to stockinette for the crown). Can I do the decreases on the purl rows? If so, can someone tell me what I need to change?

MARKER METHOD (using circular needles and/or DPNS)?Place one marker for start of round and three contrasting markers at intervals of 33 stitches each. ?
Next round: K1, K2tog, K to 3 st before 1st marker, SSK, K1. Slip marker, K1, K2tog. K to 3 st before 2nd marker, SSK, K1. Slip marker, K1, K2tog. K to 3 st before 3rd marker, SSK, K1. Slip marker, K1, K2tog. K to 3 st before round-start marker, SSK, K1.?K one round plain, then repeat these two rounds 13 times. [20 st on needle.] Remove markers on last plain round. ?
Next round: K1, S2KP, K2, S2KP, K2, S2KP, K2, S2KP, K2, K1. [12 st on needle.]?K one round plain. Next round, K2tog, K2, SSK, K2tog, K2, SSK. [8 st.] Finish.

Since no one's responded yet, I thought I would mention that charting is supposed to be a good way to figure out stuff like that. (Or so I've read.) I have absolutely no experience with it, so I can't help beyond that, but it may be something you could research.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
