Okay, I think I got it this time. After I posted the last message, I rechecked it, and realized it was wrong. I think it should be:
Round 1: k1, yo, k8, yo, k1, slip marker, k1, yo, k18, yo, k1, slip marker, k1, yo, k8, yo, k1, slip marker, k1 yo k18, yo, k1
Round 2: knit round straight
I don't know why these increases were so hard for me to figure out. Its weird how you can interpret instructions in a totally wrong way, then figure it out, go back and read the instructions again and they are written exactly as they should be. Its like they were written in some foreign language before and then all of a sudden when you finally get it, they are written in plain english.
