So I'm working on the hat seen here: http://preita.com/2008/09/12/hawk-hat/
All goes according to plan up until the decrease rows. I start out with 88 sts when I start round 1:
Round 1: *K14, P2, Sl 1, K2tog, PS, K to marker, repeat from* end P2, (86st remaining)
There's room for two repeats, plus the P2. But I ended up with 84 sts. Is it just me, or doesn't "Sl1, K2tog, PS" repeated twice decrease you by 4 stitches?
It's all downhill from this point... oh dear...
