Let's try this--according to my Stitch and Motif maker program:

The symbol circled in red means p2tog

Dark blue--the loop with the line under it means twisted rev st st

Purple--k through back loop

Green--yo

/ -- k2tog

\ -- ssk

_ -- k on right side purl on ws

l -- p on right side knit on ws

I don't know if they're the same, but that's what the chart shows for these symbols.

Hello!

I have a problem again.

The chart start with 24 stitch casted on the needle as example.
Then, If the red one means "P2Together" it was a decrease, so in the first row we have 3 decreases.
If the \ means ssk we have a decrease too, so \ \ means 2 ssk, so in the first row we have 6 decreases more.
If the green one means yarn over we have 1 increase, so in the first row we have 3 increases.

So, we wonīt finish the first row with 24 stitches of the begining, because we have 9 decreases and only 3 increases, but in the second row you can note it is suposed we have 24 stiches still.

Where is the wrong thing? I canīt find it.

When I was looking at the chart, I was concerned about that, too. I assumed that there was more to the chart than I could see and that there'd be more increases.

It is very possible that the symbols on the chart are not the same as the ones on my softwear.

www.knittingfool.com is a good source for symbols and abbreviations. I can't look at it here from work, but you might want to take a look.
