Thanks for your quick reply! I tried the pattern again and I think that I was not purling tightly enough across the yarnovers. So, the two strands are closer together but I still don't have the twisting of the 2 strands from the purl on the even rows, they are just straight. Do you think that they are doing something different than me on this site?
If you scroll down there is a closeup of the stitch. The two strands between the eyelets are twisted, whereas mine are 2 straight strands. Could it be because I hold my yarn in my right hand? It is much difficult to hold the yarn overs in place than what I've seen in the tutorial clips.
Thanks so much if you have the time to answer this. I have reknitted the pattern about 15 times now and always with the same weird result!
