- Instead of making it in 1, 4 or 17 colors I used 48 colors. It'll be 49 colors when you count the border.
- The original was knit with the new Rowan Worsted Weight yarn. I used yarn that was anything but new. It's all stash yarn in fingering weight.
- I won't be making the cabled border. Instead, I plan to knit a garter stitch border in 1 color, well, maybe 2. I'll decide when I get there.
The next decision is the layout. I'd like to have it so that no two patterns touch each other, i.e. no Clue #1 touches another Clue #1. Hopefully it won't be too difficult and that the colors end up looking pleasant enough together.
This afghan is going to be considerably smaller than the original since I used thinner yarn and smaller needles, and that's what I wanted. I was looking for a small afghan that my little grandkids can use for a nap or a fort, or anything they like, when they come to visit. I'm betting that they'll like all the colors. When I look at this I think back to when I was a kid and got a box of 48 crayons and how cool I thought it was!
