Problem shaping cat hoodie

I’m trying my hand at this adorable cat hoodie by Kristin Roach, but am having trouble understanding the attached pattern from the ‘Neck’ part of the instructions. I’ve divided for the armholes, but it says to decrease then turn and purl back. The hoodie is knit on a circular needle, so this makes no sense to me. Anyone else able to decipher?


Welcome to KH!
From this point on (Rows 1 & 2 under the Neck instructions) you’re going to be working back and forth in rows for the face opening and eventually the hood. Turn as you would at the end of a row and work the purl row.

Thanks Salmonmac! Don’t know why I didn’t think about how the hood joins in. Glad to have found this forum. Cheers!
