Icarus Issues

So, I have to get this solved before my jury duty on Tuesday.

I'm on row 9 of chart three. I'm obviously the only person with this problem because I've spent the last half hour scouring the Icarus KAL for what's going on.

I'm a stitch behind every time i get to the purl stitches. I think i've figured that the reason this is happening has something to do with a yarn over in row 7, but I've no idea what's going on. Anyway, if you've got any clues, let me know. I'm going to try to bring it to The Point on Monday either during lunch or after work (hoping for during lunch so actually get my butt to the gym after work) to see if they can explain what I'm doing.

Since all the KALsters jump from "I just did chart 3!" to "My Icarus is done!" it seems like this problem is with me, and not with the pattern. I'm starting to get a bit jealous though. I want a finished Icarus!!!

Just came here from the Knitting Nature KAL and I LOVE the sweater and The Rules!
As far as Icarus goes, looking att what's on your needles as you begin Row 9, do you have 2 edge st, 7k, 1p, 11 k, 1p, 11k, 1p, etc? Good.
Then you should be knitting the 2 edge st, yo, and into the 7k doing 1k, 1p, k2tog (ssk), 3k. Then another yo, p into the p, yo. If this is fine, onto the repeat.
Now you have 11k. Here you k3, k2tog, 1p (beginning a new column), k2tog (ssk), k3. Does that work? Then you yo, p into the p, and yo.
Sometimes I mis-count the # of knit stitches in a row, since they're just blanks.
Good luck!

I'm just catching up on blog reading. I LOVE your sweater and even more, the rules for your sweater. And your brother is a cutie! He better appreciate this!

I'm glad you're back on track!
I've only swatched for Icarus, but have the yarn already and hope to start it, for real, soon.
