So I decided to start a hat without a pattern...
Casted on 120 stitches, and after a few inches started the decrease like:
and so on....
However, I'm currently about 20 rows into the decrease, and it appears to fit my head just fine. Would it look OK if I started to skip the knit round in between decrease rounds until the end, or should I continue with the gradual decrease? Is there any worry that the gradual decrease would make the hat too large/create an awkward bump or sharp peak on the top? I'm attaching some images...don't know whether or not they'll help...
