Thanks for your help. I figured out where I was misreading the repeat. I knitted that row 1 of the pattern and used all of the stitches. I went to purl row 2 as indicated, but it was very hard for me to see the stitches. Many appeared crossed, and I ended up purling extra stitches. I don't know if that happens because of the yarn over? I tried practicing with a thicker yarn because that one is so fine, but I still had difficulty discerning the stitches....I have watched an online video and think I am doing the yarn over correct. I may have to go by the knitting shop for some help.....
