continuing then with a number of rows of "Falling Snow"
While the project was waiting to be frogged I found Coral 2 and fell in love I am using a worsted weight merino wool, "malabrigo", color #68 violetas.
My plan is to incorporate the back and the front as one panel, which is different than Maggie Jackson's approach which I had described in a previous post.
So next step is to figure out the stitch pattern for the upper back and front sides. Once I settle on a stitch pattern I will be able to figure out the stitch count for the section directly on top of the Coral 2 panel ; then I will be able to
