For this crochet along I have encouraged you to use any worsted weight yarn. Each square will measure approximately 10.5-11 inches and you will make four of them in this stitch pattern to complete the blanket. For those curious, for my blanket I will be using the Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. Along with the yarn you will need a 5 mm (H/8) crochet hook. Please note that the hook size is different from the other blanket squares in this crochet along! I have opted to use a 5 mm in order to make the stitches tighter so that it is closer in size to the other squares.
A PDF of these squares will be available in my Etsy and Ravelry Shops AT THE END of this crochet along. I will post them as two separate blankets, one including the squares for option A and one for Option B. So stay tuned if you are looking for that PDF!
