Okay, so maybe I am just dumb because all I've found are comments about how easy this hat is to make but I am just confused.

This is the pattern: http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm

I am right where it says for rows 4-29 I need to repeat rows 2-3 a bunch of times. The thing is, as I add increases, the numbers of K2, P2 and such start changing. Like, as I keep adding on purls at the end with the wrap and turn, but the "pattern" set in says only P2. Do I just keep to the ribbing rather than the numbers it says? Do I try to establish more ribbing as the increases on the ends grow? Do these questions even make sense? I really want to make this hat but I am very confused.

You add one stitch at the beginning and stop one short of your last wrap so you always are working the same number of stitches on a row. The ribbing offsets one stitch each time you increase.

Yes the ribbing develops in a diagonal.

This is a great looking hat. I struggled a bit at the beginning too.

I found it easy enough to knit, but did make a mistake quite early on by not paying attention to which line I was knitting...

I found it easiest to cross of each line in the instructions as I finished it so that I would not get confused...
