Question about a hat pattern

I’m practicing using my dpns so this may seem like a stupid question.
For the decreasing it says:

Round 1: (Knit 8, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 2 and all even rounds: Knit.
Round 3: (Knit 7, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 5: (Knit 6, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 7: (Knit 5, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 9: (Knit 4, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 11: (Knit 3, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 13: (Knit 2, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 15: (Knit 1, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 17: Knit 2tog around.

Does that mean for each dpn, i do that? Or is it K8 on one needle then knit 2tog for the rest of that row?

Any help would be sooooooo appreciated! :smiley: :XX:

Round 15: (Knit 1, Knit 2tog) around.
Round 17: Knit 2tog around.

Round 1 you k8, k2tog, k8, k2tog, etc all the way around. If you have the correct number of stitches it should work out evenly.

Round 2 and all even rows (2,4,6,8 etc) just knit all the way around.

Round 3 you k7, k2tog, k7, k2tog, etc…

Just follow that pattern.

Thanks very much Jan! :cheering:
