Need help converting in the round pattern to flat knitting
Hello, I am new to knitting and haven't been able to take the class yet wherein I learn to knit in the round. I am knitting a hat from an in the round pattern and have been able to understand everything up to where I am now, which is the decreasing portion. I am following a 1/1 ribbing and have been *P1, K1* each row. The decrease portion of the pattern reads as follows:

(Remember to start with a P st.)
Rnd 1: *Rib 6 in established pat, K2tog* around
Rnd 2 (and all even rnds): K the K sts & P the P sts as they face you
Rnd 3: *Rib 5 in established pat, K2tog* around
Rnd 5: *Rib 4 in established pat, K2tog* around
Rnd 7: *Rib 3 in established pat, K2tog* around
Rnd 9: *Rib 2 in established pat, K2tog* around
Rnd 11: *Rib 1 in established pat, K2tog* around
Rnd 13: *K2tog* around

I am on the first row of the decrease and am completely stumped as to what I am supposed to do. Any help people can volunteer is MUCH appreciated!! I will be learning to knit with circs at the end of the month but need to finish this hat next weekend.

Thanks!!!!!
Gretchen

rib 6 would meen to rib over 6 stitches (p2, k2, p2)
you then do a decrease which is the k2tog (knitting two stitches together as one).

Repeat these steps until the end of the row.

on the following row there are no decreases, just continue in the ribbing you have established by knitting the knits (the 'v' ) and purling the purls (the '-' bumps)

Sophie,

I just finished the hat with the instructions you explained to me, and it looks great--thank you so, so much!! I am very grateful . I can't wait to learn to knit in the round but this has helped tide me over.
