You may decreasing the stitches by accident, because you aren't putting in a yarn over.  Pairing a decrease with an increase keeps the number of stitches the same.
Oh, are you using the chart or the written instructions?

It's a cute pattern!
One thing that helps me with lace patterns is putting stitch markers at the end of repeats. That way if you know how many stitches you are supposed to have for each section of the skull,you'll know right away if the count is off.

Is there a particular row or stitch in a row that you have problems?

anneadeline i think im putting the yarn over correctly, i looked it up in a book. i am using the written instructions. but i'm slightly confused with them. im new to this. ive only knitted scarfs, hats and intarsia :[

dair she used the skull lace pattern for the stockings and they look amazing. thanks for sharing, its a wonderful blog.

fiber_freak not really. im just confused. i complete the first row and then i notice my number of stitches decrease

wow that is a great stitch pattern!  i know someone who will adore this!  thanks for sharing!

if you are new to lace, you have to remember this:  you will be creating holes in one row with YOs (or some other method), so you will have more stitches in that row.  In the next row you might decrease, so you are at your original # of stitches. 

like this:
knit--knit--knit
knit--knit--yo--knit
knit--knit 2 together--knit

that means in the first row you have 3 stitches, in the second row you will have 4 stitches, and in the third row you are back to 3.  now if you have bunches of YOs and decreases, it will seem like a huge difference.   I would knit for a few rows and see how it looks.  oh, and stitch markers are essential for lace!

good luck!
