looks to me like it is 1X1 rib, you can see the slightest hint of space between each knit stitch. i don't know about the shaping, but perhaps you can base yours off of one of the patterns in the slouch-a-long (thanks for joining!  Smiley).

I agree with lilizzyl.  There is a 1 x 1 rib.  You can see the beginning of a decrease in to top rigth hand of one of the pics.

Yeah I agree to. I would decrease later if you look really colse you can see the decrese. I have a hat with a simmilar shape and i decreased it in the last two inches. I had 126 stitches co. Pm after every 9th stitch 2tog before the marker in every 3rd row til only 14 stitches remain. But I'm not sure how to maintain the 1x1.
No matter how you'll do it plzshow us the resulst. Grin

I'll just have to space them differently I think.
If I put in stitch marker of where I want to decrese then I do right slanting decrease on one side of the marker and left slanting decrease on the the other side.  That way I keep two stitches together as a knit and the next two together as a purl.
That probably doesn't make any sense to anyone but myself Smiley

The decreased appear to be quite random.  I found a couple there (yellow arrow), but I can't find any others, err, umm, I am going cross-eyed staring at it! 

Keep us updated!

It's not a 1x1 rib. It's just a little spacey because it was knit on bigger needles, so when it stretches, it reveals the space in between the stitches. As to the curling, the edge might just be Bound off, in the manner that curls the opposite way, countering the effect of the stockinette curl.

Ok, so I am a noob at knitting, BUT I do the other yarn sport... have any of you ever done a cast on with a crochet hook? My gamma used to do it... all you do is single crochet over your needle as if it were a row of crocheting, it leaves an awesome tight edge on things that you don't necessarily want a 'cuff' on...
Oh, and I spotted a couple more increases (or decreases) on in the very next row (to the right of the yellow arrow) AND another one, 3 or 4 more rows to the right and about 4 rows down... they do seem to be randomly placed...
I suggest that if you are randomly placing increases or decreases, that you still have a 'plan'... so, if you are in a pattern that would call for an increase every 10 stitches and you have 100 casted on (that would be 10 increases right?) so I would make sure I increased randomly 10 times in that row... Smiley
Ok, that's my not so experienced opinion!

Please use the Help Desk for moderator questions.  I'm not currently available full-time.  Thanks!

I'd love to send you some hand spun for a poppet!
