I've been making a few hats in a puff rib pattern and can't decide the best way to decrease the top. I know I won't be able to keep the pattern all the way up, but have been struggling with making it look decent while keeping the math straight. Going to plain knit stitches makes a flat top because it's such a drastic change from the puffiness of the ribbing. Any suggestions?
Here's the stitch pattern, just change it to be in the round:
Thank you so much!
