Help with hat pattern, please

Hi there, I hope someone can help me with the crown part of a pattern that I’m working on.

Row 1. k25, k2tog, k to end
Row 2. Knit all stitches
Row 3. *k8, k2tog, Rep from * to end
Row 4. Knit all stitches
Row 5. *k7, k2tog: Rep from * to end

Continue repeating decreases at the same place 11 more times (total 13 decrease rows)

It’s the part after row 5 that I’m confused about. Do I keep repeating row 5 or rows 1 to five or something else?

I’m almost there and any help would be really appreciated!


See how row 3 then row 5 work? You will keep doing the same thing. This is a basic decrease and is the one I almost always do when making hats. Where you start the pattern of decreases depends on your cast on.

Row 6. Knit all stitches
Row 7. k6, k2tog: Rep from * to end
Row 8. Knit all stitches
Row 9. k5, k2tog: Rep from * to end

Continue in that decrease pattern.

Thanks so much. I have been delaying starting this part for fear of doing it wrong. :blush:
