I'm new to knitting daily and I am not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but I would appreciate any help you could give me.  I consider myself a beginner knitter, but I think I am capable and ready to tackle the gobi cowl pattern I downloaded from your website.  I started it only once and am prepared to start over and over until I get it right, but I don't want to waste time if the pattern is incorrect.  Has anyone started it yet?  I did a couple rows of the gobi lace pattern and it is not looking exactly like the picture, so either I am doing something wrong (which is very possible) or the pattern is just a little off.  I think it is really fun to knit this pattern and want to continue, but I thought I would wait until someone more experienced tried to knit it to see if they are experiencing the same problem.

Thanks for your help!

Whoops sorry!  MY BAD!  I was off by a stitch and it looked like it was working, but just not like the picture, so I thought that the star for the repeat row was not in the right spot.
