How to Knit a Helmetliner...Part Deux...A work in Progress

I seem to be missing some photos. So these are your steps. When you finish your ribbing, take your size 8 needles and knit across 32 stitches. Leave your size 6 needles on the ribbing. You will use them later.
K2 P2 for 5". Knit Short Rows if desired.
The above photo shows completed ribbing with short rows.

Knit across those 32 stitches on your 8's. Cast on 59 more stitches.

Join in the round and knit 4 inches.

Begin decreases.

Change to DPN when necessary.

Continue decreases until 7 stitches remain.

Run yarn through remaining seven stitches.

Weave in.

Using your Size 6 needles, pick up 60 stitches along the cap.

Join and K2P2 for 1 inch.

Decrease according to the pattern, and bind off.

The completed project.
