How many stitches short are you? The 1st row came out right for me, I cast on the 14 sts and worked as instructed. For row 2, where it says WI.fwd. K4. are you supposed to WI.fwd. and then just knit 4 as normal or do the WI.fwd. before each of the 4 knits?
Happiness is catching that dropped stitch while it's still fixable..
