this isn't good - stuck on the tutorial

yeah. so I am just about to pack it in for the night but I am having a hard time with the tutorial. I have gotten all the way through fig. 3 but can't get the top triangles Right side facing for fig 4. I am doing the tutorials with bigger needles and a sport weight yarn to make it a little easier but alas, I have done this step 3 times now and it turns out funny every time.

So I am going to sleep on it and see if I can figure it out tomorrow.

I did go to the yarn store though, and the nice lady knew EXACTLY what I was talking about and pulled out the pattern right away. I picked out this beautiful sherbet green and grey combo, but they didn't have enough balls of the sherbet green so instead I chose a turquoise and a tan, sort of like in the pictures on the pattern.

I'll take pics tomorrow and post them so y'all can see what I'm talking about.
