Am I headed in the right direction with this? Pic included

I swear I amabout ready to throw this in the TRASH. :!!!: This pattern said EASY. I am SUCH a beginner…it’s just frustrating. BUT I have/am learning a LOT…
This is what I have after I picked up my stitches…

This is what it’s SUPPOSED to look like…

I am at this point…
With size 15 long circular needle, pick up and k 100 (108) sts around entire circumference starting at center bottom of Back (circle includes bottom of Back, BC of both Fronts, and stitches on stitch holders from each Sleeve, and top of Back). Work in K2, p2 rib for 4½ in. Bind off very loosely.
So do I just start the rib pat now??? I am confused…can you tell? :pout: :pout: :verysad:

sounds right to me good luck know how frustrating some patterns can be :hair:

Ok…thanks. Am I supposed to have all the stitches on one LONG circular so the other needle is free? I think that is what is confusing me at this point…

yes now just knit on circular needle

ok…here goes NOTHING… xxx

Sometimes things look better and seem to fall into place after you knit a few inches.
