Blanket (I used an H hook)


For the blanket part you can use any square pattern you
desire and any hook size.
Be creative 
I used a solid granny square. I found a really easy to
follow pattern on Moogly’s blog:
http://www.mooglyblog.com/the-solid-granny-square/ .
I did 12 rounds and I felt it was the perfect size for a
smaller baby.
