Sally!! I was just trying to reply to the PM you sent me, and I came out here to re-read the pattern instructions, and it looks like you've got it!!
Remember ... you can always take a picture to show us what you have. Sometimes that's the best way. Also, if you can take your project to your yarn shop, they might be your best resource if you're REALLY stuck!! Nothing like having someone sitting right there watching what you're doing!
