Here's a question about decreasing while working with stripes.
I'm decreasing at the top of a hat, knit in the round, entirely in stocking stitch. The hat is striped--4 rounds of each color. The pattern calls for decreasing every-other row, sometimes SSK, and sometimes K2tog.
My question: would it be better to decrease on rounds 1 and 3 of each stripe, or rounds 2 and 4? Or does it matter? I haven't tried it yet, but my guess it that decreasing on round 1 might look funky. Whereas decreasing on round 4 might be okay. Does anyone have experience with this?
