It was confusing to me also so I read through it a second time. Makes sense now.

To shorten, just crochet less rows than described in the pattern. Hope that helps.

I love this pattern but I have a question: can you use worsted weight yarn?

This is pretty much a basic granny square pattern with an increase at the beginning and end of each row. There is also a very good diagram at the bottom of the page. It is all very clear when you think about it.

I thought the directions seemed a little confusing until I looked at the chart. This couldn't be any easier. I plan to make this with Simply Soft pastels. Thanks for the pattern!
