I have had the same struggles as you are having. Am hoping someone would be able to help us.

I love this pattern and I am working on it and NEED HELP. I took it apart 3 times because I keep getting lost where I need to be using the Special Stitch lace stitch. In the instructions under Special Stitch, it says Lace Stitch (multiple of 14 sts + 1)? Not sure what they mean. When you get to row 5 (beginning shawl pattern), the pattern says to work across row in pattern as established. I am guessing the established pattern is the Special Stitch lace stitches (1-10). The pattern says to increase every 4th row and work 3 rows in established pattern. Again, I am assuming its the Special Stitch. I am loosing where I need to be and loosing sts when it says I should have xx amount of stitches. Between adding a sts (YO), k3tog, YO, sk2p and ssk, its no wonder I keep loosing sts. Row 1 pattern says you should be on the "right side". Not problem starting out but when you get back to row 1 using the lace pattern, I am not on the right side. Has anyone out there knitted this pattern (shimmering rose shawl) and understands the pattern? Any help would be great! Thanks!

I think I can help. The 141 means that the pattern repeat is 14sts 1 stitch, the 1 stitch is usually at the beginning or the end, in this case it is at the end. You are working the increase row every 4th row, which means you will do that first, work the pattern row and do the increase indicated at the end. so your 4th row will always be the same at the beginning and the end only. with a 10 row pattern, the row increase is going to move around a few times. if you are losing or gaining stitches, you may be dropping your yo's from the previous row, you can't do that the yo is serving two purposes in this pattern, it is creating the eyelet and it is providing the stitch needed for the next row in the pattern. if you are gaining stitches, you could be unintentionally adding an extra yo. If you are having trouble telling the right side from the wrong side, placing a safety pin on the right side will help with that. The wrong side will have all the bumps on it, or as I tell my young brownies and girl guides that I teach to knit, it will be the "ugly" side. Hope this helps someone.
