If i want to knit this in the round do i cast on 80 sts instead of 82 sts because I will not need the 2 edge st? Also do i follow the pattern for the decreases with the 80 sts count?

Dear Mrs Albert, it looks right, but remember to adjust also the pattern, ie work 5 round stocking st and P 1 round (= K 1 row from WS). Happy knitting!

Czapka bardzo ładna, ale moim zdaniem jest za luźna..
