Problems reading pattern

This is my first time knitting in the round.
I'm supposed to knit stockinette for 1 inch. Do I just knit then purl or do I have to flip my work etc...?

Re: Knit in the round question

For knitting in the round, it will be connected. You'll just knit, around and around and around. No turning, just make sure you have a marker placed for the beginning of your row, and measure 1 inch from that.

Re: Knit in the round question

Can someone help me figure out what the pattern is asking me to do? If so, PM me and I send you part of what it says.

Im so frustrated.

Re: Knit in the round question

Can you just copy and post it here?

Have you done any knitting in the round before? Checked out knittinghelp.com?

Knitting in the round is fairly simple. No alternating purls/knits for stockinette(knit all rounds).

Re: Knit in the round question

As long as I don't get in trouble.

I figured out the knitting in a round and yes it is easy

My issue is reading the pattern. I did purchase it and emailed the writer to ask questions but she seemed annoyed with me and never really answered my question.

Am I allowed to post it for help? I will check out knittinghelp.com

Re: Knit in the round question

Don't post all of the pattern, maybe just the snippet you're having trouble with. Which pattern is it?

What pattern? Some of us may have it and be able to walk you through it privately.

It's the sugar bear cocoon pattern.

I'll try and be vague unless someone has it and wants to help

Basically it says:
-begin texture pattern on next RS row.
- Next row (WS) P6, work in texture pattern to last 6 sts, P6

I can't understand the texture pattern. It is on a different page of the pattern and is a series of 4 steps twice. 4 steps labelled knit flat, then 4 steps labelled knit in the round.

Is this enough info to help?

Re: Problems reading pattern

Is each step a set of several stitches?
