Thanks everyone. I'm determined to figure this out and it's nice knowing there's people here to help.
Make sure you are swatching in the round.

And if you knit tightly you may want bigger needles. Or have a glass of wine

Re: I need knitting help

When I do my eyelet row I yo for the purl ones. So I knit two, yarn over, and hold it there with my finger to make sure it stays ther and purl two together.

On the next round it looks wierd. Kind of like a v coming out of the next one over but I have had no problems bringing it back to ribbing after. I like the eye Etta on the purl part so it kind of hides the wonky looking stitches cause that part goes in on the ribbing. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks. That does make sense. My eyelet came out on the knit part but off center for some reason. I would prefer it on the pearl part but I'm just glad there was a eyelet there at all when I came back around. I stood up late and was able to do a short row. I had to improvise a little because there was a huge hole when I came back around to the second yo. (does that make sense?) I'm not sure why because I followed the instructions exactly.

I'm a little intimidated by the gusset so hopefully that will work out ok. This is my first attempt so I'm just learning as I go.

I appreciate everyone's advice!

Place marker at front and back center
At the markers knit fab knit 2 knit fab
Next round knit
Knit fab k4 kfab
Knit
Kfab k6 kfab
Knit
Continue till your rise is the length you want.
