This "shifting the markers out" is NOT WORKING OUT! Arghhhh. I want to make this, but am completely bummed and frustrated.

I ordered the very pricey Manos for this but decided to do it in a less expensive yarn for a trial run. Glad I did because I'm already confused about the "Note" which says "For larger sizes....read the foll section all the way through...

Well, I'm not making a larger size, so how much of the "following section" do I skip? Nor am I clear on the bit about moving the markers as described in "Notes" (not to be confused with "Note" as discussed above).

The second bullet point says to shift the markers out on rt side rows which I am doing, but can't really see why?  Not sure it matters, though.  Also, I don't get the first bullet point AT ALL, but I don't think that one matters since I rarely look at schematics anyway. :-)
