electrictree bobble shawlette

This delightful little pattern is a fun way to use up one of those small skeins of laceweight, but still have a fantastic finished product. This shawlette is made with 1 skein of electrictree entwine (100% merino laceweight). The delightful little bobble add a little pizzazz to a simple and easy design!

There is missing information in the pattern so would love your help with this please ....

Following is a statement that says:

"Repeat rows 9 and 11 until there are ."
There should be info there such as how many stitches across the row there are.
Can you please respond with what that number should be.
Also, I'm wondering if there's a close-up image of the "cable" pattern ... the provided image with the light and dark blue yarn make it impossible to get a glimpse of how that cable "edging??" should look.

Thank you for your help ... looks like a great pattern for a shawlette!
