I've been mulling this over for some time and have googled it a few
times but keep coming up empty. I knit a lot of hats and am working on designing some of my own Fair Isle-type ones, but problems come up when it's time to decrease at the top of the hat. How do you keep patterns going through a series of decreases like that? Most of the fair isle hat designs I've come across just have the patterning stop at that point, but I know I've seen a couple where the patterning continued right to the end (but no instructions on how they it).

Does anyone know how this is done?

Thanks!

I would probably desgn the it so that most of the decreases could take place in "plain" space between motifs.

That's what I thought originally, but the decreases are one row of decreases, one row knit, one row decreases, one row knit, etc. So that only gives me one row of plain space...
