A turn for the better!
I looked at a photo of the pattern, and think I know what she means, but I need to be sure of where you are in the thing. Can you send me the directions for the row or two before the part you are at?
I think what she wants you to do are short rows, which allow you to knit part way across rows to change the shape of a piece. I recently did a purse using the technique. It's neat and easy, but I don't want to give you bad advice!
