Always check the internet for correc-
This project is already quite fiddly enough with the string and the beads. I made it a little more so by wanting to adapt it and to knit in the round so I need to mentally change all the wrong side row symbols.
What you could see if you print out and compare the correction to the original chart in the magazine is more gray boxes (indicating "no stitch").
*Since this was Step #2 in my case the additional gray may have sprung out first on my head before it dawned on me to check!
