so when you get to the 1.5 inches: how many stitches are left for you? 32? Then you are probably right. This "continue without shaping" often only makes you get to the correct length, even if your gauge was off by a bit.
Other question: how many rows to the inch?
to get from 47 st to 32 st. that is 15 decreases. Now, doing it every 2 rows that would be 30 rows. Sounds good to me.
doing it every row (as that reads)... that is only 15 rows.
If you can fit your head in and like the shape... just do both sides the same way and you are fine.
