hi, i'm trying to make this bonnet but i'm having some trouble understanding the directions for the DECREASES. it says to increase for every other round and to decrease for every round. what does that mean? how would i decrease to 54 stitches on the front if i'm increasing every other row? thanks!

The bonnet has two sides, the front and back, divided by 2 vertical lines of
increases, which you start now:
Round 1. Knit plain (Knit second half of first round only through the back loop to untwist stitches.)

Round 2. Increase round- *k1, m1, k16 (18, 20, 22), m1, k1* Repeat once more.

Round 3. Knit plain

Round 4. Increase round- *k1, m1, k18 (20, 22, 24), m1, k1* Repeat once more.

Continue in this manner until you have 80 (88, 96, 104) sts. on the
needles.

You will now need to decrease for the nape of the neck. Keep increasing
as you have been, every other round, while decreasing every round as follows:


Round1. work 18 (20, 22, 24), K2TOG, place marker, SSK, work58 (64, 70, 76)

Round2. work to 2 sts. before marker, K2TOG, slip marker, SSK, work around


Work round 2 until you have done 5 (6, 7, Cool decreases, then stop decreasing and continue
increasing until there are 54 (58, 62, 66) sts. on the front of the bonnet (side without
decreases), ending on an increase row.

The decreases are in the middle of the row to make the shaping along the back of the head, and the incs are done at the front edges. I think the 54 sts are only on one side of the decrease line, so there's actually 108 sts total. If you look at the picture of the back of it, you can see the increase lines on the sides and the decs at the back. Try it how it's written without thinking about it too much, and it should come out right.

Sort of, but not quite. From now on, the increase round will also include decreases, and the 'plain' knit round will have decreases. So that way you get increases every other round and decreases on every round.
