I think that since you're essentailly re-writing this pattern to suit your own yarn and dimensions, that you should decrease so that you get the shape that you want. If decreasing more at the edges over several rows gives you the rounded look that you want, then do it that way.
If you want to decrease as you bind off, you do that by k2tog (or ssk) and then lift the stitch on the right needle over the stitch just made. The next stitch can be a plain knit and then repeat lifting over and off the needle just as the usual bind off.
