Thank you, Detroy. The ends do cup, but that gets better with blocking. It does take awhile to get used to charts. I use a post-it note to help me keep track of the rows; some people use a magnetic board with a bar magnet to do the same thing. As for the increases, this particular pattern increases by 2 every other row. For chart B rows 1-61, the # of stitches for each right-side row is [row # + 8]. For example, row 23 has 31 stitches, and row 37 has 45 stitches. Hope that helps a bit.
Thanks, that does help. I was using a post-it note too but it wasn't long enough once I got to the longer rows. I was thinking about buying that magnetic holder thing from Knitpicks. Will probably do that. But first I'm making Knitty's Cozy (just a bit easier than this one!).
