i know a few people have posted this so maybe someone can help interpret for me. i'm working on the Shetland Shorty Wrap http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer08/PATTshetlandshorty.html

Shape Ties:
Rows 1 and 2: K to last 10 sts, W&T.
Rows 3 and 4: K to last 20 sts, W&T.
Rows 5 and 6: K to last 30 sts, W&T.
Rows 7 and 8: K to last 40 sts, W&T.
Rows 9 and 10: K to last 50 sts, W&T.
Rows 11 and 12: K to last 60 sts, W&T.
Row 13 [RS]: K to end.
Row 14 [WS]: K all sts. Break yarn, leaving a tail.
Place first and last 60 sts of row on st holders or waste yarn.

My issue come up where is row 13 starts, do i knit all 264 stitches or just to the last turn?

Well, in row 12 it wants you to knit to the last 60 stitches, then wrap and turn.

When you start row 13, you should be 60 stitches from one end (because you just wrapped and turned there in row 12), and it wants you to knit from there to the end of the row, which would be 204 stitches, not all 264.

However, in row 14 it does want you to knit all 264 stitches.

On row 13, knit to the end of the row from whereever you left off on row 12, then knit all sts on row 14.
