As Ingrid said, as you have written out the pattern you would end up with 6 stitches at the end of a row that don't make another pattern. And you indicated that that was happening to you. This should not be happening if the pattern is well written.
I went to look at the picture. Is it the blue sweater with several buttons at the top and open the rest of the way down? (cute) I did the rows as you gave them and they will not produce the front of the sweater as pictured. You should have eyelet vees developing all the way over to the edge, but that first set of stitches inside the ( ) only makes a part of a vee.
Could there be something we are all missing here? Have you checked for corrections for this pattern?
