Description from website:
Once upon a time, in a small town in western Texas, there lived a little girl with very definite opinions on food. She ate grilled cheese at steakhouses. She ordered chicken fingers at Chinese restaurants. She knew what she liked, and more to the point, she knew what she didn’t like.

When the little girl grew up and went off to college, she yearned to fit in. She began to experiment with gateway foods, like gyros and pad thai. Eventually, she caved to peer pressure and took her first bite of raw fish encased in rice and seaweed. She was hooked. Her addiction has now progressed so far she must wrap herself in an algae-like sheath to stave off the shivering until she can get her next fix.

This coping mechanism is created sideways, from tip-to-tip. If you require a larger or smaller dosage, simply work more or fewer of the repeats of the lace charts to accommodate your rehabilitative needs.

This shawl is easily adjustable in size. Work as many repeats of Chart A as you wish until shawl is half desired width. Work Chart B as many times as required to decrease to 9 sts, then work final rows as written.
