To understand the size and length of the scarf, you can use a scarf you already have that you like very much as a reference. We will then use this scarf to understand how many stitches we want to cast on.
This is when we decide on a design as well. We will choose a design that will help maintain the shape of the scarf but look good as well.
To understand the size and length of the blanket, you can use an existing one if you have one you like as a reference. We will then use this blanket to understand how many stitches we want to cast on. If you don't have one, you can google dimensions of baby blankets out there.
This is when we decide on a design as well. We will choose one that will not be harsh on the baby skin and the blanket will be useful as well.
