Okay, this is kind of a big project so I split it in two parts.
It's a baby afghan! There are countless ways to make one. Here is the process I went through.
1. Decide on your dimensions. Mine is 8 squares x 10 squares. If you do a square than the pattern will make one complete cycle and have clean diagonal lines.
I wanted mine to be a rectangle for some reason. So, after the pattern has made it all the way through it will repeat for 2 more rows. (You'll get to see it in part 2!)
Of course, there are tons of pattern options so you don't have to do it like this. I played around with it after I made all of my squares.
2. Once you know how many squares you need it's time to pick the colors. I chose 6 lovely colors. Then I played around with color combos until I settled on my 8 favorites.
3. Finish your squares!
Stay tuned for part 2! It will be posted once I finish the afghan. Should be very soon.
