Tapered Cylinder with ribs (Knob)

jeremy_irwinjeremy_irwin Member Posts: 4
Hey All! I'm trying to model a knob that has tiny ribs all the way around. I can make the part as a straight cylinder but can't then draft it to create a slight taper. To make the knob wider at the base.

I started with a circle, added a tiny triangle to the edge and then used circular pattern to get my start and then extruded. But can't then draft it to make the whole thing tapered. I've also tried extruding a cylinder, adding a draft to it, and then removing the circular patterned triangle from the top, but I can't seem to get it to follow the slope. 

Any help you can lend?
