Gypsy Mesh Pullover finished

It's done. I like the finished sweater. It fits well and looks good. I worked on it in bursts with long periods of setting it aside. I love how pretty the yarn is but I didn’t like knitting with it. I don’t know how many times my needle just slid right out from the stitches because the yarn has no stretch or grab at all. And I had to pay close attention to avoid splitting the yarn. I didn’t knit a gauge swatch. I just guessed on needle size and lengths and got really lucky.

I am working on this right now and look forward to the finished product but have found some stitches missing in my copy of the pattern, it needs k2 in place of the k1 when I get to the big eyelet row. Did anyone find this? or have I messed up someplace, once I've added the extra k everything is fine and lines up great.

I cannot make the pattern work either. I am having trouble with rows 8-11. It seems as though I "lose" one stitch per repetition on rows 8 and 10, and the alternate rows don't make up the difference. My swatch keeps getting narrower and narrower. Can someone help? Thank you. Angela

I fell in love with the pattern the minute I saw it, but I can't seem to understand instructions for working the sleeve. When I work *p5, p2tog, yo, of pattern Row 1, I end up with an extra stitch. Please explain Set-up-row to Dec row.
