I’m getting back into knitting, and as of now I’m knitting a chicken hat! The directions to shape the crown say,
"Row 1 (RS)(Dec): k2tog, (k12, Sl1, k2tog, psso) 3 times, k12, k2tog, (53 sts) "
I understand that I start on the right side and I’m decreasing, and that I’m slipping over knots, but I’m confused with how to do what’s in the paranthesis. Also I’m doing an adult size, hence, the 13 in the bracket.
