I've finished a 2x2 rib scarf and am making a matching 2x2 rib hat. i'm at the point where i need to start shaping the crown -- but can't figure out how to decrease without messing up the ribs. If I decrease by knitting 2 of the knit stitches together, i'm left with one knit stitch surrounded by 2 purl stitches on either side.
Am I crazy? or it this the way it's supposed to be. Clearly I'm not following a pattern (can't find one using 2x2), but does anyone have a simple way to knit or purl 2 together in shaping the crown that keeps the ribs looking ok?
