help! this pattern doesn't make sense to me...
i'm trying to work on this shawl, but the pattern doesn't seem to make sense... the way i'm understanding it makes it so that it would wind up losing a crap load of stitches and winding up with only like 5 stitches left after the end of the 4 row pattern, even though you start with 32 stitches. can anyone help me to understand what i'm supposed to do to make this pattern work? it's from the vogue knitting Shawls Two book, in case anyone has that and understands it...

cast on 32 stitches.
row 1: (WS) purl across wrapping yarn twice around needle for each st.
Row 2: *Sl next 4 sts to RH needle dropping extra wraps and forming 4 enlongated sts, sl these 4 sts back to LH needle, working through all 4 sts at once, work [k4tog, p4tog] twice; rep from * to end.
Row 3: P2, purl across wrappin gyarn twice around needle for each st, to the last 2 sts, end p2.
Row 4: K2, *sl next 4 sts to RH needle dropping extra wraps and forming 4 enlongated sts, sl these 4 sts back to LH needle, woring through all 4 sts at once, work [k4tog, p4tog] twice; rep from *, end k2.

Rep rows 1-4 until piece measures 65". end with a WS row.


the first row is easy, but the way i understand it i'd wind up with only one stitch for every 4 on the second row, and the same goes for the 4th row... leaving me with like 5 or 6 stitches at the end of the 4 rows, which is definitely not right.

HELP!!!
