That's pretty yarn. The yarn needs to be something that drapes well. What fiber is it? (The page closed) If you think it would pool you might want to alternate. And yes, i think this pattern would...

Interesting, I didn't know that. I doubt very much that with 5 mil lion members anyone would really see what I'm working on unless I pointed it out, but good to know.

I would think you'd start at the beginning of the panel section and continue to work the 24 rows, but I'm not sure.

Since you can't give a link just give us the pattern name and designer if you...

The best thing to do is take it section by section as you're knitting. It will make more sense than just taking the last section out of context. So start knitting and ask for help as you need it.

As I mentioned you may have been unknowingly untwisting the twisted stitches on the back. When knitting I the round you don't work on the back so the stitches stay twisted. At least you know now and...

Bring the yarn between the needles to the front. (In this case front means the side of the work facing you. It doesn't matter if it's the actual back of your project.)

Does that help?
