I am stumped on a (free) ribbed hat pattern I picked up from the Ravelry site. It is called 'Men's Footy Hat' if that helps anyone who has a minute to check and help me with my questions.
The patt calls for 2x2 rib for 6". Decreasing begins on the ext row at the 21st stitch, 42st, 63st markers, etc., across the row using K2tog on the rt side and P2tog on the wrong side, ribbing two rows in between each dec row. My rib pattern is wrecked when I begin my decreasing. I guess it is because the decreases sometimes are a knit and a purl and sometimes two K or two P... but it is making a mess of the hat. The patt doesn't mention making adjustments other than to be sure to decrease on the same side of the markers. If anyone can help please do. This is driving me nutty!
There's a decreasing in '''ribbing''' thread here on forum under search (above); That should help......otherwise, pop a surf; I use google.......
Define '''mess''', also......do you think you've erred in the work..........? Decreasing in a 2 x 2 make is a 1 x 1 for a bit.....any special instructions on that pattern? Any corrections that may be in there?

Thanks for your reply.
The ribbing I've done looks good --- no , mistakes there. The pattern doesn't make any mention of adjustments in the pattern when decreasing. I've googled and gone to various sites but haven't found an answer to decreasing on this ribbing. Even tried emailing the designer of the pattern was referred to the knitting paradise forum to have my question answered.
I think my next move to stick to the pattern directions and see if it eventually works itself out.
The "mess" I made reference to it losing the ribbing to the point where it looks like a big mistake at every decrease across the row.
Frustrating! Was hoping to make multiples of this hat but the next ones will be a different pattern. If you come up with any other suggestions I'm all ears!
