Wintergreen and Lace

size 35 x 41

Susan Bates US I - 9 hook
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.  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

RND 1:  Chain 3, work tr in first chain, (first loop made) ch 3, tr in top of first tr, (second loop made) continue in same manner until you have 10 loops.   

RND 2.  Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, in first loop, (this will be your first corner); work 3 dc in each of next 8 loops, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc in last loop, (this will be your next 2 corners) working on opposite side of loops, work 3 dc in each of next 8 loops, end with 3 dc, ch 2, join to beginning ch 3. (this completes your last corner.), Turn.
470Note, 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
