Could you write out both rows exactly as shown on the pattern, row 2 seems to have some things missing so it's hard to count the stitches the way you've presented it.
row 1 p3 kb1 p3 kb1 p2 t3f t3b t3f p2 kb1 p3 kb1 p2 t3f t3b t3f p2 kb1 p3 kb1 p4 c4b p4 c4f p4 kb1 p3 kb1 p2 t3f t3b t3f p2 kb1 p3 kb1 p2 t3f t3b t3f p2 b1 p3 kb1 p3
row 2 k3 p1 k3 p1 k2 p2 k2 p4 k3 p1 k3 p1 (2 times)
k4 p4 (2 times) k4 p1 k3 p1
k2 p2 k2 p4 k3 (2 times) p1 k3 p1 k3
but it seems the beginning of row 2 doesnt match row 1
thank you Bev
