Ok so I do the following:
Cast on 44 sts.
Join being careful not to twist sts.
K2 P2 rib for 5-6 rounds.
7th round: *K 1, K2 tog, YO*, repeat between *’s ending with K2 tog.
Repeat 7th round except move the pattern over 1 st each round???? so the YO’s are moved one st to the left each round to get the spiral effect.
Continue until as tall as you would like to the upper crown of hat.
So how many rounds am I doing this for
