I've been trying to do this pattern for two days. I can't get past row 8.  I've tried doing it according to the written pattern and I've tried doing it using the chart, and I cannot get it to come out evenly.  Not sure if a step was omitted in the directions or what may have happened, but I am left with more stitches at the end of the row than I should have.  Anyway someone can check it out and offer clarification?

Hi there,

I had the same problem with row 8. Then I found the correction here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/mimicat/hibiscus-tunic

Now I'm up to row 15 and it's going great!

Best of luck!
