What you will need:

  • 1420 yds (1300m) #3 dk weight yarn
    or
    284 yds (260m) ea of 5 colors #3 dk weight yarn
  • H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

Shown in: 

Be So Baby Yarn; 100% milk fiber, #3 dk weight yarn; 142 yds (130m) per 1.75 oz (50g) ball; shown in colors A Salmon, B Gold, C Turquoise, D Prince and E Indigo, 2 balls each.

Note: 4 balls each color for a rectangular shawl with 2 stripe repeats per color. 8 balls each color for a large afghan with 4 stripe repeats per color.

Note: Be So Baby Yarn is discontinued. Here are some suggested yarn substitutions for a suitable DK weight yarn:

Ice Yarns:

Cotton Bamboo Light Yarn: 60% bamboo / 40% cotton; 153 yds (140m) per 100 gm (3.5oz) ball. It comes in 29 colors. The suggested needle size is 3 – 4 mm (US 4 – US 6). I think the drape of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It is labeled a #3 DK weight yarn. This yarn retails for $2.25/ball or $8.99 per 4 balls.

Jimmy Beans Wools:

Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK Yarn: #3 dk weight 80% bamboo / 20% wool; 104 yds per 50 gm ball; needle size US6. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It comes in 13 colors retails for $6.75 per ball.

Knit Picks:

CotLin: #3 Dk weight 70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen; 123 yds per 50gm skein; suggested needle size US 5 – 7. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It comes in 44 colors and retails for $4.99 per skein.

Sirdar:

Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK; #3 Dk weight 80% bamboo / 20% wool; 104 yds per 50gm ball; Suggested needle size US6. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It comes in 12 colors and retails for $6.50 per ball.
