So I've just begun knitting a couple weeks ago and after doig some simple things I wanted to try my first attempt at lace. I purchased a pattern on etsy and am a bit confused on how to execute.

I cast on my 88 stitches and did k1,p1 for several rounds and am ready for the lace work to start.

I'm confused about the "No Stitch" boxes. Would I just pretend they aren't there and make the first 11 stitches in the round the purl ones indicated on the chart and continue the round by making the 12th stitch that k2tog in the 2nd row and just keep going around and around?

I apologize if this is a stupid question, I'm a total newb still! :/

I've attached a photo from my phone of the chart

Yes, the no stitch boxes mean 'there's no stitch on your needles for this box' so you just ignord them. They're there to keep the chart squared up, place holders for sts that will be added later. So yes, purl them if it's a RS row, or knit them if a WS row. The chart is too small for me to read the numbers so I can't tell if it's for all rows or just the RS rows.

the no stich boxes get ignored, they are place holders for increases or shaping between repeats of the lace pattern
