Not Just A Baby Bag Stripe Details

For those of you who want to make the striped bag just as I did, here are the rows, the color no. of the Galway yarn color, plus the Galway color name.

But first, the list of colors I used with Galway color number first (in ascending number):

16 true red, 83 bird’s egg blue, 111 sicily blue, 125 raspberry (I’ve just learned this color was discontinued after my collection was released, so if you can get your hands on it, buy it!–a good sub is 163 Magenta), 130 peat moss (another very recently discontinued color.  A good sub is 754, turtle heather), 141 fuchsia (another recently discontinued color), 146 celery, 148 ruby, 153 Iiris (also recently discontinued–a good substitute is 89 lavender), 154 apricot, 161 cornflower, 163 magenta, 175 heritage blue, 176 endive, 177 honeysuckle, 179 lemon zest, 757 bark heather.

You will note that my bag flap is 8 rows short of what the pattern calls for. . . this is becuase I decided that I wanted the flap to be a bit longer. . .  after I had already made the bag.  So, I indicate where I stopped, but also indicate what to do to make the flap as long as the pattern says it is.
