Ok, I feel better that you've verified that there are 43 sts to start. I'll try again. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong with the yos. This is my first knitting project after a 14-month hiatus (I had a baby) so I'm a little rusty. Thanks for your help!
ETA: I'm not doing the beads. I'm not sure I even understand how that works.
And I printed the chart two days ago, so I know it's up to date.
