i need help understanding a pattern

I'm new to knitting. Where I get confused in this pattern is toward the very end where it says k15 tog and repeat * because I don't know which * they're referring to? Please help me!

Cast on 90 sts and work in seed st as follows: * K 1, P 1, repeat from * across row.

2nd Row. * P 1, K 1, repeat from * across row. Repeat last 2 rows 5 times. P 2 rows.

Work in pattern as follows:

1st Row. K 1, P 1, * K 1, P 4, repeat from *16 times, K1, P 1, K 1.

2nd Row. K 1, P 2, * K 3, P 2, repeat from *16 times, P1, K1.

3rd Row. K 1, P 1, * K 3, P 2, repeat from *16 times, K1, P 1, K 1.

4th Row. K 1, P 2, * K 1, P 4, repeat from *16 times, P1, K 1.

Repeat these 4 rows for pattern. Work even in pattern for 4 inches, ending with 4th row of pattern.

Next 2 Rows. Working in pattern cast on 5 sts at beginning of each row.

Next 6 Rows. Work even in pattern increasing 2 sts on last row ( 102 sts).

Next Row. K 15, K 2 tog, repeat from * 5 times.

P 1 row.

Next Row. K 14, K 2 tog, repeat from * 5 times.

P 1 Row.

Continue to decrease in the above manner having 1 st less between each decreasing point until 36 sts remain.

P 1 Row.

Next Row. K 2 to g across Row.

P 1 Row.

Cut yarn leaving an end long enough to draw through remaining sts, fasten securely.

Sew back seam. With right side toward you starting at the inside of turn back, pick up and K 64 sts across lower edge of Cap and work 3 rows in seed st, bind off.

Trim with ribbon ties as illustrated
