So, I've started on Shedir from Knitty:

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/knittyF04surp.pdf  (It's on page 3)

and I wanted to see if anyone has another idea for the decreases?  The existing decrease rows end up making the top look kind of like a flower or a snowflake or something and I just know my husband wouldn't dig that.  I like the rest of the hat as is, but the decreases not so much.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for your help!!

perhaps instead of converting to purls, keep it criss-crossing like the koolhaas hat?

Hmmmm, I actually plan on buying the Koolhaas pattern later this week so I'll have to check out how the decreases work on that one because I definitely like that look more.  Thanks!!!
