How can i decrease when i am making a hat using the knit 2 purl 2 pattern? usually for my hats i like to start decreasing with either a knit 5, 6 or 10 stitches and then knit 2 together (usually when i'm doing a knit 1 row and purl 1 row) Help!!
Try not to think of it as k2, p2 when decreasing. Instead, just following the established pattern and decrease accordingly.
k2tog, p2, k2 acrossP2tog, k2, p2 acrossk2tog ...etc ...
I'm surpised the patterns doesn't specify the decs :??
I'm still confused. what should i do between the rows when i decrease? (i'm knitting on straight needles)

Thanks Amy!! This was what I was thinking, but couldn't find the words.
