The wedding shawl starts out with 60 stitches cast on.
The pattern increases from 4 stitches per repeat to 56 stitches per repeat over 46 rows.
Thus, rows 47 thru 81 are 684 stitches apiece.
And this point is where my pitiful math skills fail me, leaving me utterly unable to comprehend, much less figure out, how many stitches there will be total in the body of the shawl.
I can tell you that it is now taking me about an hour and a quarter to knit the plain rows on the shawl. The patterned rows and beaded rows take longer.
