Salmonmac explained this well, just wanted to let you know there's another way to start a shawl. CO 11 sts, then knit 3 rows, putting an increase in each one, near the middle. That will make a sturdy curved piece for the neck and you can begin with a WS row or the RS, however you want to begin the pattern.
