Hello there

Glad I found this site where I hope someone can help me after looking on the internet for hours and hours for someone to give me an answer to my question.

I am making a hat with an even number of stitches (84)

The first row is KK,PP,KK,PP etc

The second row is K,PP,KK etc end ending with one K

It’s like a false patent pattern.

My question is: how can I decrease my hat with this kind of pattern?

I tried to divide 84 by 6 , so K2,P2 and then a decrease at stitch 13+14 but very soon the pattern gets lost, so I am not doing it correctly and I have no idea how to solve this.

Also, if you start decreasing, do you Always have to do a row of decreasing and then a row of plain knitting, then a row of decreasing etc… or do you decrease every single row ?

Thank you for reading !
