Bernat Baby Coordinates
5.6 oz skeins Approx 160g/ 394 m / 431 yds
Color A 1 skein pink (or color of choice)
Color B 1 skein green (or color of choice)
Color C 1 skein white (or color of choice)
Size and yarn requirements may vary due to choice of yarn and tension
NOTE: the current skeins of Bernat Baby Coordinates are now smaller. Check your label.
NOTE: Those with some experience may wish to work this afghan face up if they understand the stitch pattern. I find it easier to hide the joining line if each round is turned. All single crochet rounds are worked on the wrong side, all double crochet rounds on the right side. All color changes are begun with the single crochet row to preserve the appearance of the afghan. You will be able to tell if the double crochet row is worked on the wrong side
Note, this auto separates the 2nd round into 3 dc groups. 1 dc group in each side loop and 3 dc groups in each end loop. The dc groups on the ends will have a ch 2 space between each group which is the foundation for the corners
2 Round Stitch pattern: (starts with single crochet round)
Rnd 3. Ch 1, sc in 2 ch space, ch 3, sc in same sp, (to form corner loop); (*ch 3, sc between next dc group) repeat across round to next corner 2 ch space. In corner ch 2 space, work sc, ch 3, sc (form corner loop) ch 3 sc in next 2 ch space, ch 3, sc in same space, (second and third corner loop complete) ch 3, sc between next 3 dc group, across round. Ending with, sc ch 3, sc in same 2 ch sp, chain 3 join to first sc. Turn
Rnd 4. Sl st into 3 ch loop, chain 3 (counts as first dc throughout) work 2 dc; 3 dc ch 2, 3 dc in corner loop (*Work 3 dc in each ch 3 space to next corner loop, work 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in corner loop) Repeat around, join to top of beginning ch 3. Turn.
Rnd 5: Sc between dc groups, ch 3, sc between next group to corner. In each corner work sc, ch 3 sc, around, join to first sc. Turn
Rnd 6: Sl st in 3 ch space, ch 3, 2 dc in same space, work 3 dc group in each 3 ch space to corner, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in each corner. Join, to top of ch 3. Turn
Repeat Patten rounds 5 and 6 to desired size of afghan.
Color changes are at your discretion but every color change
begins on a Sc and Chain stitch round.
