Knit from the tip.
CO edge is the height.
Knit using the seed stitch.
Increase the first stitch on every 4th row and then knit the purls and purl the knits.
Try different needle sizes to get your desired tension. I started with a US 15 and the stitches were too loose, US 11 was too tight, US 13 was just right. :)
