Notes

cast on #1 (notes here) as soon as the pattern came out…and it was such a joy to knit that I cast on #2 as soon as #1 was off the needles

I rarely make the same thing twice…and never one right after the other so that should tell you how much I love this pattern ♥

making the smaller version (no mods) but with dk weight yarns ~ using odds and ends in my stash and scrap bag to put this one together in all my favorite colors of autumn
