Would you be able to break this down to a "shawl"-sized pattern

Thank you,

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern, absolutely love it. This will be my first afghan and I am so excited to use your pattern. Everything is going well, but I found that you have to count the posts(there are 5 posts) on your afghan and not the diagram. The diagram is so nice to have so you can figure out the pattern. Thanx again

Hi, just found this pattern, beautiful afghan by the way.im stuck at the beginning, Would like to know if I have to ch1, skip next ch, right before the decrease. The pattern does say to ch1, skip next chain after the decrease. Hope you can understand me. Thx

Before the decrease you have
(dc in next ch, ch 1, skip next ch) repeat 3 times
so you do have the instructions for ch1, skip next ch, right before the decrease

I have started this afghan and find the pattern very difficult and have been unable to figure it out. I am fairly new to crochet, but have been able to figure out most of the patterns I have tried. Is there a way to check to see if it is me or is it really a difficult pattern?
