[blue]I am using the following pattern and would like to downsize it. If I adjust the #of sts as indicated in brackets, will this work or am I mising something??

CO 87 (77) sts on 10 US (6 mm) circular needle. Join, being careful not to twist sts. Mark beg of round. Knit in garter stitch 6 rnds (knit one rnd and purl the next).
Dec: *k1, k2tog; rep around - 58 (48) sts. knit in St st (knit every rnd) for 5".

Crown Decrease

Rnd 1: k1, *k5, k2tog; rep from *, end k1 - 50 (40) sts
Rnd 2: k
Rnd 3: k1, *k4, k2tog; rep from *, end k1 - 42 (32) sts
Rnd 4: k
Rnd 5: k1, *k3, k2tog; rep from *, end k1 - 34 (24) sts
Rnd 6: k
Rnd 7: k1, *k2, k2tog; rep from *, end k1 - 26 (16) sts
Rnd 8: k1, *k2tog around, end k1 - 14 sts (12)
Rnd 9: k2tog around - 7 sts (5)

Thanks Anderknit and Minh. Somehow I thought I didn't have it quite right. I will try your suggestions and see if it works out. Thanks again.

I agree with anderknit. It would look something like this:

CO 75 sts on 10 US (6 mm) circular needle. Join, being careful not to twist sts. Mark beg of round. Knit in garter stitch 6 rnds (knit one rnd and purl the next).
Dec: *k1, k2tog; rep around - 50 sts. knit in St st (knit every rnd) for 5".

Crown Decrease

Rnd 1: k1, *k5, k2tog; rep from * - 43 sts
Rnd 2: k
Rnd 3: k1, *k4, k2tog; rep from * - 36 sts
Rnd 4: k
Rnd 5: k1, *k3, k2tog; rep from * - 29 sts
Rnd 6: k
Rnd 7: k1, *k2, k2tog; rep from * - 22 sts
Rnd 8: *k2tog around; rep from * - 11 sts
Rnd 9: k1, *k2tog around; rep from * - 6 sts

I'm no expert, but I believe that the number of stitches you cast on needs to be a multiple of your first round of decreases (k1, k2tog). In other words, if you do a round of (k1, k2tog) decreases (3 stitches), your cast on should be a multiple of 3. So, cast on 75 or 78 stitches rather than 77. I think.
