Help with this simple hat pattern??
I found this easy pattern on this board, but I'm having trouble with it.
Here's the pattern:

My confusion is you have to alternate rows of knitting and purling to get the garter stitch since you're knitting on the round. That I get, no problem. But then when you start decreasing, they give all the directions knitting. Am I supposed to knit all rowes when decreasing?? (Wouldn't that change it to the stockingette stitch?)). Am I supposed to purl a row in between the decreasing knitting rows?? Am I supposed to purl together every other row according to the directions but purl instead of knit like they say??

If anyone can clear up this confusion, I would really appriciate it!!

If you want to keep the hat all in garter stitch, I think you need to purl all even rows where they tell you to knit.
Just because I'm easily distracted doesn't mean I

It looks like a mistake in the pattern to me, too. It may have been converted from flat knitting and that went unnoticed.
