I learned how to knit about a month ago and I’ve got most of the basics (knit, purl, cast on and off) down. I finished a scarf and now I want to try a hat. But I don’t really understand the part of the instructions where you start to shape the top. I was wondering if anyone could translate this into English for me?
Row 1: (right side) knit 7, knit 2 stitches together. Repeat from * to * across row – 88 stitches remain. [out of 99 stitches total]
Row 2: (and all wrong side rows) purl.
Row 3: knit 6, knit 2 stitches together. Repeat from * to * across row – 77 stitches remain.
Row 5: knit 5, knit 2 stitches together. Repeat from * to * across row – 66 stitches remain.
Continue in this manner, working 1 less stitch between decreases until 22 stitches remain. On next right-side row knit 2 stitches together across row – 11 stitches remain. Purl one row.
