How do you suggest blocking this shawl? I don't want to squish the pattern too much.

how can I make this narrower? 24" is too wide, how about 12 to 14 inches? Thanks!

This is a pretty pattern. I would like to know if the "edge" stitches are included in the CO 99 stitches. Also, it says to slip the first edge stitch and purl the last, but are the second and second to last knitted? Thank you.
