I tried to start this last night but I got kinda frustrated.  In row 3 (I think) where you're supposed to drop the stitch off the needles, the stitches ended up unraveling all the way to the very bottom of the project and it became really loopy at the bottom, which I didn't think was right since it doesn't look like that in the picture.  Help?

Also, at the part when you're supposed to knit 1 without dropping it off needle, does that mean that you keep the stitch on the left needle after you've knitted it and procede to do the yarn over?

Thanks!

I just finished knitting this, and as I was doing the row after the yo, I realized I had forgotten to yo a couple of times.  If you forget to yo, that means instead of  k1, yo1, k1, yo1.... your pattern is k1,k1,yo1,k1,yo1..... so when you are dropping stitches on the next row, you will drop the knit stitches instead of the yos.  Even though I tried to be more careful to do all my yos, I still looked st each stitch before I dropped it (you can tell the difference between a yo and a knit by looking at it).

To answer your 2nd question, this was the first thing I ever made with a pattern, so I'm not sure if I did it right, but what I did was to keep the stitch on the left needle and procede to yo and then purl, etc.  but, I ended up with the next row having a lot more than 92 stitches.  Is that right?  I didnt think it was, so I k2tog enough times on the next row to bring it back to 92.  eventually, I just did that step, except I alternated between k1,p1,k1 and k1,p1 for that step (I didnt do as many things as it told me to).  does anyone know if thats right?

sorry, I dont have the book in front of me, so i hope I got everything right, and I hope that helps.  good luck!  i will post pictures of mine soon.

So basically I should be dropping the yo's I made?

You girls should check out another thread: Knitting-Projects from Stitch 'n Bitch- Spiderweb Capelet.  There was *much* discussion about row 4 and dropping YOs.  And the designer, Peachass (hee! great name!), cleared it all up for us. 
Here's my advice:
-be very careful to drop YOs and *not* real stitches (don't give yourself a heart attack)
-the number of stitches per row is constant (92? 94? I can't remember)
-when you're increasing in one stitch (K1, don't drop, YO, P1, don't drop etc...), what you're really doing is [k1, don't drop, bring yarn to front, p1, don't drop, bring yarn to back] twice. It's just like when you're knitting ribbing: after a purl and just before a knit st, you bring the yarn from the front to the back; after a knit st and just before a purl, you bring the yarn from the back to the front. 
Anyway, read the other thread, mull it over, and voila!  I should become clear.

I'm totally in! I have been frogging and re-frogging the SNBN Spiderweb Capelet- not because of the pattern, because after the bajillionth time i figured that out- the yarn I'm using- Paton's Divine is coming out too thick. I like the light thin drapey feel of peachass's one! This will be fun!
