Notes

Starting soon. I have the pattern for and have made the adult/big afghan already, so I will “reverse engineer” the baby size and use my left overs.
**************
guessing about 121 sts to cast on. will knit a false cast on edge so that it won’t get worn the way the big afghan’s cast on edge did.
**************
10/10 - had to rip out and cast on more sts because it didn’t seem wide enough. I did enough for 2 more sections.

Re-harmonized the color scheme to utilize my leftovers better and make it a little girlier. Here’s my color scheme:

A - Cobblestone
A1 - Dove
B - Wine
C - Coral
D - Fairytale
E - Pink (not Brava - stash unknown sportweight)
F - Rouge
G - Cream (not Brava - Vanna’s Choice)
H - Jacaranda
I - Eggplant
J - Tranquil
K - Tidepool
L - Cornflower

If I had more White leftover, I would have used that instead of the Cream - I may yet sub some unknown white stash acrylic if I feel like it. :o)
