These are short rows which are done to create shape. Just turn your work as you would at the end of the row. Don't worry about the stitches remaining on the left needle. You'll get to them...

There's a progression to the decrease rounds. It may be similar to other hats that you've made where there is one fewer stitch between the decreases on each decrease round. I would continue with...

Exactly. That's why for that first decrease, omitting the yrn and just doing the p2tog will work.

Very cute little elephant. It looks like similar directions come up in a couple of places. It means to purl every other row for the given number of rows.

The idea is that you don't work the yrn, p2tog repeat at the ends. Instead, change the p2tog to two purls sts. Use one or both of them as needed for the decrease.
Try it out on a swatch so that you...

The easiest way to think of this is to consider the pattern stitch as a pair: yrn, p2tog. Change one set to purl sts and work the decreases. When those stitches have been used, change the next set to...

I like the ways you want to use color too. Easier to avoid stripes in the ribbing, I think but the others sound cute. You could really give this doll a wardrobe of sweaters or dresses.

That's it exactly. The greater the difference between you knit and purl rows, the more kite-shaped your square will be. I agree with Jan, blocking will help with this.
If you prefer to do k2tog and...

Are these cuff down or toe up socks?
For toe up you can take out the cast off and use a stretchy cast off like the sewn bind off or Jeny's surprisingly stretchy bind off.
I assume they're not though...

OK, good. Well, it sounds like you've maybe diagnosed the problem yourself. Is it possible that the p2tog tbl didn't catch both sts? It's a tricky kind of stitch to do and it might be where the extra...

These are consecutive rows? There's something wrong. Row 1 ends with 74sts but to work row 2 you need 72sts.
Is there a p2 missing between p2tog tbl and p2tog on row 2?
