I love this shawl, but a bit confused. When you say cast on 225 Sts. using a double strand and both needles, what does that exactly mean? Do I knit the whole thing in double strand? and why 2 needles for the cast on? I know I am missing something for sure.. help!

Help! Got border done . on short rows I knitted 105, bu it left me in the middle of shawl. Do I turn still? How many stitches do I leave at end of row before turning back? Is there a mistake in the pattern

There is no mistake. You start from the middle of the shawl and add sts to each short row on both sides until all stitches are used.
