(to increase size, the formula is a multiple of 12 +3, then add a ch 1 to turn)
Approx. 20+ week gestation size
White - sc across, ch 1, turn
Color A (pink):
row 1 - *sc 3, hdc 2, dc 5, hdc 2* across (ending with sc 3), ch 1, turn
row 2 - sc across, ch 1, turn
row 3 - repeat row 1, (should have sc on top of sc, hdc on top of hdc, and dc on top of dc), ch 1, turn
White - sc across, ch 3, turn
Color B (blue):
row 1 - *dc 3, hdc 2, sc 5, hdc 2* across (ending with dc 3) ch 1, turn
row 2 - sc across, ch 3, turn
row 3 - repeat row 1, ch 1 turn
Then I took color B and did only rows 1 and 2, followed by the white sc row.
At the end, after a white sc row, I did color A's row 1 and 2 only.
Skipping the color A row 3, I did the white sc row and then did the border.
Does all this make sense?
By the way, this pattern was adapted from an awesome hat pattern!
