Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®
12 stitches + 8 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in half double crochet, with 2 strands of yarn held together. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

I made this for my niece, I changed the colors and made it a little bigger because she's 3 and I want her to grow into it. It was really easy to make, I think it took me longer to sew it together but I wanted to make sure everything lined up and she couldn't tear it up!
