Has anyone here made a smaller shawl using 1 less repeat of Chart A? I'm thinking about it--and have to commit in just a few rows!--but would love to hear any experiences you've had. Thanks!

I did, and it turned out fine - but I was using thicker yarn than suggested, and I'm quite short, so I wanted a slightly smaller shawl anyway.

If it's the size you're worried about, try pinning it out a bit and measuring the length of one repeat. If you can do without those extra inches (twice along the top edge, once lengthwise), go for it.

I'm going to be taking out one repeat of Chart 1 in my shawl. I've got a little less yardage than called for and I'd really rather be safe than sorry. I'll let you know how it turns out. :)
