Scaling Favicons

When I redid my site to use Hugo I also redid my favicon . I wanted this favicon to also serve as the Add to Home Screen functionality provided by Chrome . I expected Chrome to automatically scale up the favicon. When I designed it I made it pixelated on purpose, so some very crude scaling was just what I wanted. Unfortunately Chrome doesn’t scale automatically, so my add to home screen icon was just a blue square with a white S set in the center.
