On the Silly Hair pattern under 5th row it says Cont. in this manner. I've tried to figure it out and nothing works, could you please help me, thank you!

Hi there! It seems you alternate the odd rows, which involve decreasing, with the even rows of purled stitches, until the pattern decreases to 22 (18) stitches. Where it says K17 in the 3rd row, and K15 in the 5th row, follow that pattern of decreasing 2 stitches each row (K13 in row 7, K 11 in row 9, etc), and that should hopefully work out. If not, I'd suggest contacting Yarnspirations directly since this is their pattern. Good luck, and I hope that helps!
