I'm going to bring Soleil to Las Vegas!!

6 more days to go!!!! We are going to Las VEGAS for three nights. Just for FUN!! I really can't wait to go.

I have decided to make summer top for my trip. I don't want to bring my current WIP - wool vest for my DH. Too big for me to bring, and may be too hot for me to knit wool yarn there!! I browsed around the patterns through internet and books. I decided to make SOLEIL top. I want to use Rowan All Seasons Cotton yarns. I have no experiences reading the lace chart and practiced knitting. I messed up three times and could not figure out how to make right lace. I emailed Alexandra who designed the Soleil asking for help. Maybe you can help me...can you translate what the chart says into written instruction? I really want to make that top for my trip to Las Vegas.

Here what I wrote and am not sure if is it correct?

Row One: Knit 10
Row Two: Knit 1, yarn over, knit 3, slip 1, k2tog, psso, knit 3, yo
