It’s a simple four-stitch pattern, which is nice and bunchy and soft for a scarf I made. Now I want to make a matching hat, but am not sure how I should work in the decrease. The pattern, in rounds, is as follows:
Round 1: [k3, p1] repeating
Round 2: [p1, k1, p2] repeating
I would like to maintain the ribbed pattern all the way to the top of the hat, but am not sure how to do the decrease without ruining the ribbing, and not sure whether the type of decrease should be a k2tog or some sort of more exaggerated slanting decrease. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. General tips of decreasing ribbing would also be helpful, as I’m sure I’ll want to make other ribbed and patterned projects that use decreases!
