A pattern question...K3tog, Work 1 row?

I am following a pattern to knit a hat. The instructions say to…

Shape crown:
Row 1 (RS): (K7, K3tog) 4 times. 32 sts.
Work 1 row.
Row 3: (K5, K3tog) 4 times. 24 sts.
Work 1 row.

Does this mean I knit 7 sts, then 3tog to equal 32 sts. Then just knit (or do I purl since it’s the WS) the next row? Then continue the decreasing instructions?

I am a little confused.

Shape crown:
Row 1 (RS): (K7, K3tog) 4 times. 32 sts.
Work 1 row.
Row 3: (K5, K3tog) 4 times. 24 sts.
Work 1 row.

So… on the first row you’ll do this:
Knit 7, knit 3 stitches together, knit 7, knit 3 stitches together, knit 7, knit 3 stitches together, knit 7, knit 3 stitches together – by the end of this row, you should have 32 stitches on the needle.
Row two: purl
For row 3: knit 5, knit 3 stitches together (do these two things 3 more times) – by the end of ths you should have 24 stitches on the needle.
Row four: purl

hope that helps!

Just did the 1st row. I think I got it. Thanks! :smiley:
