This pattern was a nightmare from which I thought I'd never wake up.
The designer has corrections on some website, not that they helped me. A day late and a dollar short.
You could Google Veronik Avery, or Dollar and a Half, and you might find her corrections page. Or maybe they can be accessed through Ravelry.
Sounds like you have the lace pattern down...although, get ready for another nightmare when you have to start decreasing within the lace pattern for the neckline decreases, and so forth. It is very hard, but I think her corrections page addresses the decreasing within lace pattern.
I burned my notes for this cardigan. There were pages and pages of math, diagrams, and scribble...and even if I had saved them I could never decipher them if
I wanted to torture myself and make another Dollar and a Half.
So sorry I can't help you much with this Dollar and a Half.
Are you a Raveler? If so, here
is a link to my notes. They may or may not help you with other issues...cuz the lace pattern wasn't the only problem with this cardigan.
My advice: ditch it and make a different cardigan.
This one isn't worth it. As the saying goes,
"the pain ain't worth the gain"!
PS: here are a few corrections that Interweave Knits admits to:
