 Cheesy Yay! I can't wait to see your finished backpack.  And you can start any ol' place you like in the pattern. I personally love doing the face pieces because they have the most going on.

I think I see where the problem is. I think you may have only done half the YOs you should have done while making the crown.
The first step is to cast on 10 stitches and then your first increase you work a YO between every stitch, giving you 10 eyelets and 10 normal knit stitches for a total of 20 stitches.
Your following increase row you are increasing between every OTHER stitch, still adding 10 stitches for a total of 10 stitches. You keep going in this fashion, adding 10 stitches in each increase row until you have a total of 90 stitches.

If you do that, you should still have 10 eyelet stitches in every row, and you are simply maintaining the number of stitches by doing a YO increase, knitting 7 stitches, then doing a decrease to compensate for the YO.

Does that make sense?

Let me know how it goes if you do make it. You can always email me if you have questions.I'm happy to help. There isn't much that's hard, it's more about just taking your time with it. Smiley

I made it to the next round, but won't know if I won until later this summer. Keep your fingers crossed for me Smiley

Those handpainted spindles are indeed beautiful. I corresponded with someone who had gotten one for herself and loved it.

Well, good news, the shawl has made it to round two of the contest
I mailed her off to the judges and am awaiting the results. The due date for the shawls is May 15th, but I don't know when I'll know if it made it to the top 5, but regardless, I'm really happy it's made it this far in the contest. Smiley

 Cheesy Thanks Jejune
No pattern for him, though he's pretty simple, a pear shaped body and a big round head with some i-cords for appendages. I would offer a pattern but I think that's a no-no because of trademark infringement  Sad

I knit this yesterday for a friend who is about to have a baby and who loves Invader Zim. It's Gir in his dog suit.

He's knit of Rowan Calmer and a sport weight cotton for the legs and arms. The rest is done with felt and cotton floss. He's understuffed to be extra snuggl. I'm actually going to have a hard time parting with him.  Grin
