Patern help

HI!!
Iā€™m making my brother a hat
and part of the pattern looks like this

Rnd 1: *k2, p2tog; rep from * - 36 sts
Rnd 2: *k2, p1; rep from *
Rnds 3 & 4: Rep Rnd 2
Rnd 5: *k2tog, p1; rep from * - 24 sts
Rnd 6: *k1, p1; rep from *
Rnd 7: *k1, k2tog; rep from * - 16 sts
Rnd 8: k Rnd 9: k2tog around - 8 sts

I get everything else, but the the - 16 sts is throwing me off

(NEWBIEEE!! :wink: )

NEVERMIND!!
i figured it out
sorry!!!:muah: :muah: :muah:
