I tried this on needles but do you think there's a mistake in the "end row" on row 13 where it lists k6?
Both Rows 13 and 15 show a change in the written instructions for the end row - I believe this is incorrect. Row 13 should end with K7, same as the repeat. Row 15 should end with P2, also the same as the pattern repeat.

I am still thinking the pattern should reflect a multiple of 20 stitches plus 1. Rows 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 show a P3tog as the last stitch of the repeat, the last repeat on these rows is P2tog tbl, and the Begin Row is P2tog on these rows. Does this make sense?

Well, it is now going to be a summer shawl. Visited my LYS in Santa Fe, found a beautiful linen, silk and cotton blend in an off-white. Wound my first ball and working out a few details with the ACTUAL yarn. Been swatching for seems like months now. I am ready to begin
