Lace Shawl Pattern
The instruction for this lace shawl is a bit confusing. I am not new to knitting, but I am stuck with what the instruction is trying to tell me. It says:

On WS rows, K and P into double YOs between the Chart repeats.

According to the chart I do not see any DOUBLE YO. In fact on the chart it reads (RS):
K3, *YO, K, YO, K, YO, K, YO, K, YO, SSK, SSK, SSK, SSK, K, K, K, K, K2TOG, K2TOG, K2TOG, K2TOG, YO, K, YO, K, YO, K, YO, K, YO*, K3

(WS): K3, *K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K, K*, K3

Please let me know if a pic of the actual chart will be more helpful. Thanks!

Take a look at the chart key and see if 2 of the YOs in the repeat are marked as double YOs. Is there anything else in the instructions about double YOs? Looking at the rows given, there's a decrease of 2sts in row 1 and I'm wondering if it's made up in another row or if there should be 2 double YO's on the WS to balance the decrease.
Yes, I think a picture of the chart and the key would help and also the name or a link to the pattern.

It says:

*YO, K, YO, K, YO, K, YO, K, YO, SSK, SSK, SSK, SSK, K, K, K, K, K2TOG, K2TOG, K2TOG, K2TOG, YO, K, YO, K, YO, K, YO, K, YO*

is your repeat. It both begins and ends with a YO; therefore you have a double yarnover between repeats.

Thank you both so much for your great reponses. I apologize for getting back to you so late. I have a 3 month old and an 18 month and have been battling a bit of insomnia as of late (hence the almost 3AM question). So if I am understanding you right MMARIO, once I turn my work to the WS and encounter the double YO's of the beginning and end of the rep on the RS I should both K and P into each?thereby creating two new stitches.. Thanks again!!!
