  1. I lost my hat pattern. I was looking for it. And I couldn’t find it. I completed the rib. The next step. I need to decrease evenly across row using (balanced decrease). I started out with 90sts.
    I did the math. And I came up with k14, (k2tog) repeat 2 times, k2tog, k14. Do I need to know one row without decreasing? And instead of knitting 14? I knit 13 and follow ( k2tog, k 28) 2 times k2tog, k13? And so forth?

  2. How to figure out the amount of stitches to Decrease when finishing off a babies hat that has 72 stitches. How do you go about figuring that out so that it is even?
