When I first started out knitting, I used patterns from Lion brand's site, www.lionbrandyarn.com
. These are categorized according to your skill level. I started out with beginner patterns, went to intermediate, and then on to advanced as my skills improved. If you don't know how to do something, you can google it, search for tutorials on Youtube, or ask someone in forums such as this one. I had some patterns that were very difficult for me. I set them aside. A year or so later, I was able to do them with ease because my skills improved. This may be what you need to do with this pattern. I'm not trying to discourage you, but if you don't get it don't take this as a personal failure. You will eventually learn.
