Well, thank you very much!! I've done it. I'm over the hump, past that third row and now I've done all there is to do, as far as new things. I should be good to finish it! Oh, and do the other side, too. I've learned a lot and I'm so grateful for your help. I'll post a picture when it's done!

It was the yo and mixing knit and purl. I got out the stitch markers and proceeded with awareness and calm, and voila! It came together. Fourth try, I think. And then when I hit the most complicated bit (for me!), slip 2 as if ktog, knit 1, p2sso....It took two tries, but I did it! The rest of the sweater is garter stitch. That will be a picnic!

Well, here it is! When I put it on for this picture, my husband said "when are you starting one for yourself!" And, there is nearly enough left to do another one. I never use as much as it says. I bought 7 balls (100g) and only used nearly 4. So, I've arranged for another one and I'm going to start a sweater for me.

Hi I'm also new to knitting charts and I'm quite confused. My rows are only 7 stitches long technically but I have 96 stitches which leave me 5 left over to not completely finish another set.. so confused, help!

Hi and welcome to Knitting Help!
It depends on what the blocks in your chart repeat are telling you to do. There may be yarnovers in the chart which don't use a stitch but do take up a block or k2tog which takes up one block but requires two sts. Can you write out the first line of the chart whcih is causing trouble and tell us which section is repeated? or give us a scan of the first few rows?
Can you post a link to your pattern or chart or give us the pattern name?
