Once you get to a couple of inches short of the end you can start decreasing by picking a multiple of your stitch number. If you have about 80sts (8 x 10)for example you can knit 8, k2tog around and then knit a row even(no increases or decreases). On the next decrease row, knit 7, k2tog around and then knit a round even. Keep going like this till you get to a small number of sts (say 8), k2tog around, then put the end on a tapistry needle and thread through the sts on the needle and fasten off.

If you do decreasing, it will look different, but will it mess it up? That's a personal thing and depends on the look you want. You could do some decreasing and then run the working yarn through the last stitches the same as for a beanie. Depending on how much you decrease it could end up looking like a stocking hat. http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...t=stocking+hat

No it won't mess up anything. When you get to 9" or so, work 6 sts in k p, and k2tog, all across the round. Then do one round keeping the rib pattern, which you'll probably have 2 knits next to each other. Then another decrease round of k5, k2tog around and one round with no decreases. Next k4, k2tog around and also dec on the next round with k3, k2tog. Then k2, k2tog on one round, k1 k2tog on another. You might have to do another round of k2tog, so you get down to 8 or 16 sts and pull the tail through the sts like a drawstring.
