Shawl Design in plain English book

Hello,

Do any of you have the book, Shawl Design in plain English by Julia Riede? If you happen to have it, the problem I am having is understanding how to use the recipes, or templets.

You have to see the book to understand my question, so if you do. HELP! PLEASE!

Thank you

I don’t have the book but is it possible to explain the problem. Usually templates are provided and you can plug in your stitch number or measurements and then work the pattern.
