Baby cables hat help?

Hi! I’m hoping someone can help me. I’m making a hat with baby cables knit with straight needles (couldn’t find 13 circs) I’m using real chunky yarn

Pattern reads:
co 48
row1: p1 k3
row2: knit sts as they face you
row3: p1,slip1,k1,yo,k1,psso
row4: knit sts as they face you

do this 3x

Work st st total of 6 1/2"
dec every 7th st across k row
dec every 5th st across k row
dec every 3th st across k row
dec every other st across k row krtog across row
cut yarn pull thru

My dilemna is I don’t st st I would like to work the whole thing in the cable pattern how would I go about the decreases?

I’m sure some here can help. i got the pattern from my lys and they’re closed for a week and I would love to finish this.
