For petite shawl measuring 12"x54", as on my test in the sock weight seen below, Use a multiple of 4. Cast on 3, wrap holding peg, *EW 4 on FB, wrap BB1*, repeat between *,* till last 3 st. EW 3.
This will take out a few drops and changes the sizing.
*The pattern is railroaded by knitting the length on the width of the board but one can knit fewer multiples on any loom and skip 2-5 pegs before wrapping EW to get the same results and it will effectively "turn" it to the side. You would just knit till you got the desired length. For example using a Knifty Knitter: work as a flat panel and skip enough pegs to make about a 4" drop, then wrap the next peg. Leave 3 pegs at the end to finish the row in 3 EW. Knit till desired length.
*If your yarn isn very nubby you can use my stretchy bind off but you will need to add extra wraps or chains between to span the distance between the drops; this changes the look of the edge to look crocheted which was not intended.*
