Advice needed: Decreasing ribbing on circular needles
A question for the experienced knitters in the group...

I'm working a k2p2 hat in the round, and it's time to start shaping the crown. What is the best way to decrease the ribbing to make it look nice?

The way that I see it, either 1) each of the "ribs" could get smaller, or 2) I could have every other knit rib "bend over" the purl stitches and merge into a neighboring knit rib.

Does this make sense?
