It is like the three needle bind off only omitting the bind off part. I'm using it on my shawl for joining the knitted blocks together.

I knitted the bottom block of the back panel of my shawl and left it on a spare needle, finishing on a RS row. I then knitted a number of rows on the second block, ending on a RS row. Then with the wrong sides of both blocks facing up, and the first block on top, I joined both pieces, following the pattern for the second block, knitting one stitch from the first block together with one stitch from the second block.
I made a ruffled purse for my GD and did this, ending up with ruffles that overlapped the fabric I knitted underneath. I'm not seeing how it works for your shawl but that's OK. My brain is mush anyhow. Maybe a picture in What'cha Knittin'?
