Thanks for that Suzeeq, the pattern is called tuck stitch but firstly there is plain increasing rows i.e. the purl side goes like this 'P2, m1p [which is m1 but purling into the back of the loop], so would this be k2 then knit through the back of the stitch? Then it goes on p3,m1p so many times then p4,m1p so many times. So would the purl stitches here just be knitted? The actual pattern is first row. K1, p1 to last stitch then k1 Row 2 is P1, knit into st on row below, p1 Row 3 Knit Row 4 Purl then when you shape the crown all the stitches are knit ones. So again what would I do here?
