In the middle of each row of the pattern, beginning at line 16 you will see "yo,k1,yo,k#,yo,k1,yo" The "yo" creates the line (border pattern) that separates the solid part from the lace trim and adds 2 stitches. The k# in the middle is the solid part of the shawl.

I just saw the picture of the stitches. OK....so, after the 45 rows, I am on the border 3rd row. So, I will have to next knit the 5th row as depicted in the graph. Will try doing it this way since, I am done up to 45 rows now.

This is a lovely pattern and if it works out, I hope to knit many more shawls!

Will keep you updated.

Thanks.
