Change in Pattern Choice

Knit club met tonight and we have decided that the Hourglass pattern I had previously chose to knit is not working out for any of us so we have changed our January sock pattern to Deby Lake's Tidal Wave Socks.Needless to say what we accomplished tonight was the decision that the other pattern was not for us.
Knit club will meet next on Monday night, February 2nd.Seee you there.

I left a comment on your blog last week about one of your patterns, but I think maybe you didn't see it?
I am trying to make your knotted openwork shawl, but the pattern is not making sense to me (I am a semi-beginner knitter.)

Here is my confusion:

I cast on 42 stitches as indicated.
Row 1: Purled across = 42 stitches
Row 2: Followed directions with YO and PSSO = 42 stitches
Row 3: Purled across = 42 stitches
Row 4 says: K1, *K3, YO* to last 2 stitches, K2.

If I count that, row 4 will give me 51 stitches, which I then never decrease, as the pattern starts over from Row 1. And then row 8 will increase again, etc . . . so that would not make a rectangular shawl.

Am I misunderstanding something from the pattern?

Thanks for any help you can offer! I will check your blog or you can email thru Ravelry. My screenname is MikesWife and I have a project listing under your pattern with no picture.

Sometime it takes me a while to respond to comments and for that I apologize.I do work full time and I am not as diligent as some.
Now to respond to your question about the knotted openwork stole.Make certain that you *do not* yarn over before the very last knit stitch on row 2.
I hope this helps
