Knitting in the round

I am knitting a simple hat. If i leave the finished knitting down, the part that would be a garter stitch would be facing out. How did this happen, or is this normal? And when i get to the decreasing, what do i do?

If i pull it up through the middle than it’s all awkward and stuff, and how do i decrease that…

the part that would be a garter stitch would be facing out

Garter st is the same on both sides so it’ll look the same inside or outside. Do you mean another type of st? Stockinette?

And when i get to the decreasing, what do i do?

Are you following a pattern? If so, what does it tell you to do?
