First here's the link to what I'm knitting. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer04/PATTpetitchou.html
I've asked all over and so far no one can really understand exactly what to do. I'm stuck on row 6 but I'll post rows 1-7. What I really need to know is how row 6 is supposed to be started and what it might look like when I'm done. I used a circular needle(2 ends) instead of the dpn. I purled the first stitch on the left needle to the first on the right needle.I used the stitch created and repeated that step in row six. After I was done I had the stitches on the holder left but everything else was bound off so I don't think I did it right.
I also tried purling the two stitches together and repeated with every stitch which decreased the number of stitches in half. I was left with something doublesided and not enough stitches to do row 7. So I'm hoping someone can understand what exactly I'm supposed to be doing in row 6. Thanx!!!!!
With straight needles, CO 79[95, 111] sts using invisible method.
Row 1: K.
Row 2: P 38[46, 54], pm, p3, pm, p 38[46, 54].

Remove scrap yarn from CO and transfer these 78[94, 110] sts to smaller dpn or circular needle.
Row 6: Hold the needle at the top of the work in your left hand. Fold the bottom needle up towards you. The smooth stockinette side should be on the outside of the work.
P the first stitch on the the "top" needle tog with the first st on the "bottom" needle. You will end up with just one st on your right needle.
Rep 31[39, 47] times, slip the next 14 sts from the bottom needle onto a st holder or scrap yarn [you should have 32[40, 48] sts left], p the 15 sts from the top needle, p tog the rest of the sts as for the beg of this row.
