basket weave hat

Pattern: Brother-in-Law basket weave hat. Found it on Ravelry.

Yarn: Berroco Pure Merino Nuance. Super wonderfully soft and easy to work with. LOVE it.

He's worn it a couple times now. Seems to like it. Its a little looser than the angora hat and if I was to make it over again I would either go down a needle size (no gauge was given in the pattern) or I would start decreasing a few rows earlier.

All in all I was very happy with this one. :-)

forgot to say that I really like the coloring of the basket weave hat's yarn. I'll have to look for that yarn

Can you help explain how you decreased the stitches for the basket weave? I don't understand what kody meant by "working the stitches" and then k2tog. Like she says work 8 stitches then k2tog, does that mean purl 5 then knit 3 and then k2tog? I'm quite confused and would really appreciate the help!
