When I'm having a problem like that I find that it helps me a lot to
put a stitch marker after every repeat. For example:
K1 - stitch marker - yo, k2, sk2p, k2, yo, k1 - stitch marker - yo,
k2, sk2p, k2, yo, k1 -stitch marker and so on. If you do that you
should have 1 stitch and 10 repeats of the 8 stitch pattern.
If that doesn't work, check for errata for the pattern. It might not be
I hope this helps!

- Becca--you rule. Thank you so much for the marker suggestion. It
totally worked! And now I know that I had indeed made several mistakes
before. (:-\) I feel sheepish!
I'm so glad it worked. Don't feel sheepish . . . that's how I started
using that method myself. I was making my first shawl and I cast on
about 100 times and then started the first 2 rows 200 times and then
finally put the stitch markers on. I don't know about you, but for me
it's just hard to keep track of all those stitches!
P.S. to the whole group. I graduate May 5th, so hopefully I will be
able to get back to SnB soon! I miss it so much!!
