Completing row one gives 11 stitches completing three makes 15 stitches ten more rows adds another 40 stitches, a total of 55 stitches -- can't forget the first time we knit rows 3 and 4.

I'm somewhat confused by the directions for the Painted Desert Lace Shawl. How do you make it to "desired length" with out increasing? Also repeating rows 34 10 times does not total 55 stitches. Increasing 4 sts in row 1 10 times equals 44, not 55. Plus the 11 sts from row 2 are rolling the bottom. Am I missing something?

At the end of row 1, you will have 11 stitches on the needle, complete row 2, still have 11 stitches, row 3 adds 4 stitches so you will have 15 stitches at the end of this row, complete row 4 as directed in pattern, no increases so you will still have 15 stitches. Repeat row 3 and 4 10 times will add 40 stitches so with the 15 already on the needle it will make your total 55 stitches. When calculating increases, you have to remember to add the stitches that were already on the needles, I think this is what is mixing you up.
