Ok, I'm on shaping crown, I did set up row, did next round knit all, Here's my problem: on next round (decreasing) Says " [ slip marker, SSK, knit to marker], repeat to end. DOES THIS MEAN I ONLY DO ONE SSK FOR THAT ENTIRE ROUND?
Next round says Repeat "Plain round" and "decrease round" until you 18 stitches left..

Thanks, Cathy

The part in brackets is to be repeated to the end. So, every time you come to a marker, slip the marker, then SSK & knit to next marker. So, depending on how many markers, that is how many decreases you will have in the decrease rows. Hope this helps!

A specific pattern link would help a lot ... as others have implied... I suspect that when you did the set-up round you were supposed to place markers every "X" stitches.
then you are doing a decrease round with the SSK after each marker and the next round is a plain knit

It would be very unusual to only decrease one stitch per round... not to mention, it would be a weird looking crown on the hat... possible, I guess, but....

I was just going to say you missed adding some markers in the set up round.

Next round (set up round): [SSK, knit 12 (14, 16), place marker] repeat brackets to end.
