Thanks for all your help reading this pattern. This is the first pattern that I haven't been able to "read". Everything other pattern seems to be set up the same. So it was just a bit confusing when I came to this pattern.
I have looked at the pattern with different eyes and I can see now where to direct myself.
I'll keep updates on how this is coming along.
Again thank you all for helping me through this frustration I've been feeling toward this pattern.
