I use Bernat Baby Coordinates which is a Size 3 yarn:
with a size G hook. I weighed the last afghan I made and
it weighed 1lb 5-3/8 ounces
(so that one took 22 ounces to make using Bernat Baby Coordinates).

Here is a larger copy of the graph:
Inside each square (between the puff stitch dividers) is 27 stitches tall x 27 stitches wide.
Each letter is 13 stitches tall x 7 stitches wide.
I’ve made this pattern many times.
I like working the border as I go instead of adding it later... therefore I add
4 more stitches to my foundation chain in order to incorporate two extra stitches on each side of
the afghan... placing puff stitches to form the edges.
I add two additional rows to the beginning and two additional rows to the end.
To begin I work Row 1 all single crochet... then Row 2 I work the same as Row 28.
For Row 168 I work the same as Row 28 and then finish working Row 169 in all single crochet.
To read the graph you begin where it says “start” (unless you work the border like I suggest).
Read Row 1 from Right to Left.
Read Row 2 from Left to Right.
Continue reading all ODD rows from Right to Left and all EVEN rows from Left to Right.
