Decreasing and ribbing...
So I am working on this for the first time and am confused:
http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt06.htm

When I start the decrease the ribbing goes all haywire. How do I prevent that from happening?? I am picking up a stitch and keeping with the knit one, purl one...

Thanks in advance!

I don't think there is a way to keep a k1p1 ribbing going when you decrease, so it seems that they switch to all knits for the top of the hat.

Apparently the designer didn't thing so. I think trying to maintain ribbing would look funny, though. I think knitting it all probably is the best solution.

This would work much better with k2/p2 ribbing instead of k1/1... might change the look of the hat a bit, but worth a try. When you get to the decreases, do a row of k2tog/p2, then a round of k2tog/p1, then k1/p1 for 2 rounds, then k2tog around until your stitch count is small enough to gather.
