Ok, I'm by no means a lace

Ok, I'm by no means a lace expert, so take what I say with a grain of salt. If anyone with more lace experience than I wants to take a look at the pattern, it can be found at 24 Carats Shawl Pattern from elann.com

First, there shouldn't be any problem with row 14 at all... that one is a WS row, and should just be k1, purl to last stitch, knit the last stitch.

I'm guessing then that the problem is on row 13 (the next eyelet/increase row). I had to really, really think about this one, as the pattern isn't very well written in my opinion. I think what is meant is that the K3s of row 9 goes up by 2 stitches each eyelet row. That is:

Row 13: K2, YO, *K5, YO, K1, SM, K1, YO* 4 times, K5, YO, K2.
Row 17: K2, YO, *K7, YO, K1, SM, K1, YO* 4 times, K7, YO, K2.
Row 21: K2, YO, *K9, YO, K1, SM, K1, YO* 4 times, K9, YO, K2.

You're increasing 10 stitches each eyelet row, so after row 21 you'd have the 67 stitches that the pattern calls for.
