I used to knit but stopped for many years and have started again. I am trying to complete a rolled brim hat on circular needles, but I am confused by the pattern. I started with 96 stitches. The top decreases says:
Round 1:*knit 6, knit 2 together:repeat from * around.
Round 2:*knit 5, knit 2 together:repeat from * around.
Round 3:*knit 4, knit 2 together:repeat from * around.
Break yarn, leaving 12 in. tail. Using tapestry needle, draw yarn through remaining sts and pull together firmly.
When I made hats in the past, I decreased stitches until I had 6-8 stitches left. After doing 3 rounds of decreases, I still have 60 stitches left. Is it okay to stop decreases now like the pattern says?
Thank you for your help!
