Midwest Moonlight- shorten row?

I started Midwest Moonlight (knit picks merino style) and it seems wide. How many of you alum's of this pattern experienced this- did you cut one of the lace/solid row repeats or are you folding it in half when worn? Just curious. (I've only done a few inches so I can be "curious"... once I do a few more, I will be "committed.")

    It does make a fairly wide scarf which I do end up folding in half when I wear it.

    I did mine with fingering weight yarn, and it was still plenty big. I figured I could use the same yarn, and cut the pattern in half to have a nice skinnier scarf.

    i just made one as the pattern reads, i am going to block it out longer and narrower, i think next time i make this, i will only do 4 or five of the pattern repeats instead of six. i used a sport wt. yarn and size 4 needles, still a lovely scarf.

    I just cast on for mine as well, but i am using a wortsted weight yarn (Lorna's Laces Sheperd Worsted superwash wool) and I am doing 2/3s of the repeats. I cast on 33 (instead of 49) and when it says repeat twice, I only repeat once. This width seems much more manageable for me...
