Rows 1 & 5: (RS) K4, place marker, work row 1 of chart A over next 28 sts, pm, Repeat chart A 4 (5, 6,7,8, 9, 10, 11)times, pm, work next 29 sts in chart A ending with greyed st at last repeat, pm, k4.
I hope I can put this clearly. The pattern says the chart is 14 stitches. But the VDD takes 3 stitches, while the chart just gives it one. Or am I doing the VDD wrong? My count isn't coming out right because of this; at least, I don't think it is. Working only 28 stitches leaves me short of completing the chart twice that first time, and working the chart twice leaves me less than 29 stitches when I get to the end of row 1.
I know about the email knit along list, and I have joined it and posted my question there, but I've asked a couple of questions before that were never answered there, so I thought I'd try here, too.
