Here's a link to a cast-on tutorial for a similarly constructed shawl:


(a visual always helps me to see what direction I'm going.)

Obviously, you would need to plug in the Kiri stitch numbers to end up with your 13 stitches.

A Kiri shawl would be a good beginner shawl.

If you look at the cast on numbers for the two sizes listed (8/10 & 12/14), there's a 16 stitch difference. 

Try casting on 16 less stitches (144) to get a 4/6.

Knit your swatch first and check your gauge & measurements to make sure.

There was something about dropping the stitch where the round was joined back to the beginning & then setting it straight and using a crochet hook to pick up the stitches

I think that only works if you're a couple rows in & you have to be happy with that little bit that will be twisted...
But, here's a cut and re-join technique that might work

Heirloom Knitting has some really intricate patterns...There are a couple free ones if you follow the link on the left:


Wendy Engstrom has a beautiful pattern-not specifically a 'wedding ring' type lace shawl.


I think the wedding ring shawls refer to the shawls ability to be passed through the ring, rather than a specific pattern.  Undecided This would depend more on the yarn weight and the lace pattern used.
