Ok, I've been knitting awhile and consider myself an "intermediate" knitter, but this pattern is giving me fits.  I can't get past the first few lines on the pattern.  It is the yarn overs.  Not used to doing them.  So question, after the first yarn over row, do you drop those stitches on the next row, or keep knitting them and then drop the stitches at the end of the pattern and make sure they drop all the way down the ladder of stitches?

Confused.   Embarrassed

You keep all the YOs on the needle until you get to the straight section which is where you begin to drop them. Just treat them as an added stitch, though your stitch count won't change because after the first one, you do a k2tog or ssk next to them, and follow the pattern. Don't think it too hard. Grin

I feel your pain my dear - I started it about a hundred times and got so frustrated.  Just hang in there - when I finally got past that first bit it soared and I was done in no time.  I might even make myself another one!
