EvaA:  I ran into the same problem you seem to have. I started knitting and I finished row 4 with way too many stiches as well.  You may have figured this out already, but I think if you knit the parts in the asterisk (*k4, [k1,p1]twice, k4, [k1,p1] 4 times*) three times, instead of 2, you will find you don't have any extra stiches.  So I think row 4 of the pattern should say the following:

Row 4: Sl 1 pwise with yarn in front (wyf;
see Notes), k5, [k1, p1] 4 times, *k4, [k1,
p1] twice, k4, [k1, p1] 4 times* rep from *
3 times, k6.

I did this and didn't end with any extra stiches.  If you haven't figured this out, I hope it helps!

EvaA, Sl 1 purlwise means to put your needle in the front of the stitch as if you were getting ready to purl it, but don't work the stitch, just place it on your right needle; k5 means to knit 5 stitches; (k1, p1) 4 times means to repeat what is in the parenthesis 4 times; then you will follow the directions within the asterisk 2 times NOTE: I have placed an asterik after '4 times' to make it easier for you; finally you will knit 6 stitches. Note: It's like a mathematical problem, anything within parenthesis or asterisk will be repeated, or multiplied, the number of times specified. Good luck. When this becomes second nature, you will have such a feeling of satisfaction...meaning you will feel smart until, like all knitters, somewhere else you will encounter another challenge. Have fun!

I just started knitting this beautiful necklet but I have a problem reading the instructions for row four. When I have followed the instructions I have way too many stitches left. It says k5, [k1,p1] 4 times etc. so I k5 then 4 times [k1p1] and I do the same with the instructions inside the  asterisk. What am I missing?

This is so pretty, boy I wish I could knit I would make this so fast.  Knitting is a real challenge for me and very time consuming as I am a self taught thrower thus the time factor.  I am not around any knitters so .... but very nice.

Thank you for making this available.  I think a red cowl laced with a black velvet ribbon will delight my resident fashionista.  She loves Leighton Meester's Gossip Girl style and this cowl and her own gray wool coat will really appeal to my girl..
