Thanks for your replies. Sorry the pattern is printed, not online so I can't link it.
Ah, my 2 favourite pet peeves in knitting patterns: typographical errors and badly worded instructions.
The typo because it should read 'Start knitting in reverse stockinette stitch
' and the badly worded instructions because they imply the whole thing is turned round
while knitting. It's simply turned over
All you're doing is switching from working every round in all knit stitches to working every round in all purl stitches.
