I searched a bit and while one person had a similar question, it didn't quite match up with mine, so help would be awesome!

I have started this shawl:
http://beyenburgerin.wordpress.com/2007/11/02/kite-o-mania-arvika-shawl-english-pattern/

And the chart only goes for 15 rows. Then it says to follow the chart until it's the size you want. Well...where do I start the repeats? Do I keep going from row 3 and just repeat across? I have knit both lace and with charts before but for some reason the answer to this one alludes me! Thanks in advance!

It looks as if you would repeat rows 3-15 (actually to row 16 since it doesn't show the WS rows) of the chart. You would repeat the pattern between the edge sts too.

So when I finish row 16, I begin with row 3 again just continuing until there are no more stitches? And do I only add the edges stitches to the edge or  repeat the pattern in full?

the charts for triangle shawls usually include the increases, either on the edges, or on the center. i think that one will be on the edge.  the chart didn't mark the pattern repeat, though, and i fail at reading charts just for read. i can only understand them as i knit along... maybe later i could try the start, and see if i identify the repeats for you.

I took it to my LYS and had her explain it to me and still had a hard time following. I bought a new pattern! I still want to work this one out though because it's cute!

Yes to both. But sorry you had to put this one away. Maybe you'll pick it up again to do another time.

What I liked about the pattern was that you can use any yarn/needle etc. I have 3 skeins of 100% silk from sapphire jade it's about DK weight. It's gorgeous and I could make it smaller to use on summer nights etc. That's what started all this. LOL

Thanks to the both of you for the help!

I think I figured out the original pattern - there's 2 row 3s which is confusing. The set up rows are:

CO 3 sts - k3 on next row; R 2, p3 (incl edge sts); R3 - selv, inc1, YO, K, YO, inc1, selv and that gives you 5 sts which you need to start R 3 of the chart. Rpt chart rows 3-16 for pattern.

The M1 is like MLL/MRL as shown on knittinghelp.com ... You insert into the selvedge st and knit 1, then YO, K1, YO, insert needle into the end selvedge and knit one.
