Could you post the instructions for the stitch pattern? I'm not familiar with it, but could help you out if I know what you're supposed to be doing.
BTW you don't do standard continental if your sts are mounted differently than english. That would be 'eastern' or combined contintental. If your pattern has decs - k2tog/ssk - you need to swap one for the other to make them lean the same way as in english style.
