I am using the attached pattern. I knit a 4" ribbed section. The pattern says to start the decrease when the hat is 7" from the cast-on edge. My hat is 7" when I have just finished a row 2 of the cable section set up. Shouldn’t I be starting the decrease when I am beginning the cable section set up? Also, I am only 3" passed the ribbed section. Is that long enough to start the decrease?
Thanks for your help.
