About 60" across the top, knit from this Lion Brand pattern using 3+ balls of Paton's Divine that I got at THE DOLLAR STORE!!! Hooray for bargains!!!  (I bought 10 skeins, now to figure out what to do with the rest!)

It's quite fluffy and warm, and is going to my great-aunt who lives on the Oregon coast Smiley

 I love it and would like to attempt it.
I am new to knitting so some things elapse me from time to time.

It says in a few places first one is ROW 3 -- K 2-11 sts,
Row 5 -- K2-15 sts
ROW7 -- repeat row 5 and 6-19sts
I bet your seeing my point by now...
Now since you have seen the pattern, you know that I am not posting the entire row here, but a mere part of it.
 I am lost to the K2- # of sts when those stitches do not even exist in that row...am I to guess how many I knit.  Meaning it is up to me as 2-11? and also row11 am I only to repeat row 5 for exactly 27 sts and then continute to next row?

Sorry again, I am still learning patterns thanks in advance for you assist.

That's where the markers come in.  So when it says:

Row 5: K 2, yo, k to marker, yo, sl marker, k 1, sl marker, yo, k to last 2 sts, yo, k 2 15 sts.

After the first time, it's going to be way more than 15 sts.  So you just follow the "k to marker" and "k to last 2 sts" instructions and don't worry about the stitch count.

I hope that helps!

I have made that shawl too!  It's a fun pattern.  Yours looks great, I love finding yarn at the dollar store!
