I am trying to knit a hat, and this is the pattern:
Cast on 40 sts.
Row 1 - Work in K2, P2, to end.
Row 2 - As row 1 repeat rows 1 and 2 until work measures 20cm from cast on edge.
Shaping of hat:
Next row - (K2,p2tog) repeat to end of row (30sts).
Next row - work stitches as they appear.
Next row - (K2,p1) repeat to end of row (20sts).
Next row - work sts as they appear.
Next row - K2tog to end of row.
That's the last of the knitting
However, I don't understand what it means by 'work stitches as they appear'
Please can someone explain?
